We're Accepted

This morning around 11 a.m. we got word from America World Adoption Agency that we've been approved for adoption! So, pretty soon we should hear from our contact there and see what the next step looks like with them.

The forms are coming in for our home study. As soon as all those are in we'll be doing the first of 5 meetings with our social worker. The process is supposed to take anywhere from 1-2 months. We were hoping to be done by the end of this month, but looks like that will take a little longer than expected. But, since our schedules are pretty flexible, maybe it will be a little quicker than most.

As soon as the home study is done we should be able to apply for grants. This will be huge because the cost for a little one from Ukraine is anywhere from 25-35K! So, please join us in praying for that major issue. We're praying that God would allow us to adopt with no debt.

Hey... we're praying for this bold move you are making. It's interesting that we have met several people recently who have also adopted girls from the Ukraine. We are trying to get contact info for you so you can touch base with them.
