How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time! We made some more progress today. Did yet another set of fingerprints, had another doctor appointment and had more blood work done, dropped off some more completed forms, picked up a completed form, and somewhere in there we breathed a bit.
We have our first home study interview scheduled for next Thursday. Please be praying for that. We are putting together our dossier (thus all the above mentioned errands) and have something important to tell anyone who is even kind of thinking about international adoption - GET YOUR PASSPORTS! Make sure that you have certified copies of your birth certificates and marriage licenses as well. You may need a certified copy of your marriage license that is no older than 6 months when the dossier is submitted.
We will have a booth at the Flatlander's Day Parade this Saturday in the Madera Ranchos to help advertise the good work that God's Waiting Children is doing, and to let people know what we are doing. I pray that the Lord will use us to get the word out about the need of orphans around the world.
Thank you again for your prayers.
