Another Working Weekend

What an amazing Saturday!  It is truly gorgeous here in Charleston! There is a wonderful breeze coming in the second story window.  Today has been one full of paperwork, but I feel like we are making tremendous progress.

Last night, we took a short break from the craziness and went to the mall for awhile.  It was nice to get away from the "LIST" and just be together for a bit.  While we were there, we got an email from the case worker in WA.  We have been officially accepted by this organization and assigned to a new case worker who will get us through the home study process.  We also received the next wave of required paperwork from the local agency, so we started on that right after breakfast this morning.

I gathered about 20 documents and we each wrote our autobiographies for the social worker.  I had to run to the office to scan things because my printer at home is acting up.  While I was there, the social worker assigned to complete our home study called.  We had a nice chat and I feel that she is very aware of what we need to do and what our crazy timeframe looks like.  She agreed to do everything within her control to get this done for us.

Tomorrow after church we will get some recent photos printed for our packet and then overnight it to NC first thing Monday. This week's focus will be letters of reference and our first meeting with the social worker on Wednesday afternoon.  We are still praying and trusting the Lord for all these things and for the financial support that we will need. We have applied for a few grants, so add that to your prayer list.  Have a great weekend everyone!
