What.....I have a blog?

Okay guys....I know I have been slacking and I am sorry. Things have been a bit hectic around here, and blogging has been put by the wayside. I have been meaning to post for a while, but something else always keeps coming has been a hard summer for me, and I am really looking forward to fall. We start singing class tomorrow, and gymnastics next week. We have been keeping busy this past summer with playdates, friends, and family. Lucy will finally be baptized in October, something we have meaning to do since we came home last year. We also have been paperchasing. Yes, I am finally admitting it........ We have been so hesitant, because so many things have, and still CAN go wrong. Our house has been a whirlwind of (gotta love the new Hague laws!!) parenting classes (12 hours), FBI checks, doctors visits, and psych evals. Oh, and did I mention we have a new social worker???? (ours left for a new agency) Our homestudy visit is this Friday. Keep in mind we already did our homestudy update in May but since it is not country specific, we need to pay again to have things added. By the grace of God we have gotten financial backing (loans) and pray that He will make sure funds are available to repay them. On a funny note...I am being asked to provide documentation on an underage drinking ticket from 16 years ago for Immigration. The Police Dept. in Wisconsin laughed at me when I asked for it. I honestly DID NOT think that would come back to bite me in the butt!!! Anyway...I am not going to release any more info until we are further along. I will tell you all though that we are crushed that at this point, we are NOT expecting Lucy's sibling to be from China. Hope everyone is well, and please keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we move forward. Thanks Dawn for giving me the push to get my act back in order!!

A sibling for Lucy!! Woooo Hooo!! I can't wait to hear where he/she will come from. So sorry it's not China, but I know that China is so very hard nowadays to adopt from. Congrats and good luck with the continued paper chase!! Amy in Arizona

That is wonderful news that you guys got the loans and everything is moving back into place. I know USCIS can be ridiculous with those silly rules about any infraction...GEEZ! Glad it is all is moving along now.
