Well, if it hadn't been long enough, we FINALLY got our completed homestudy in the mail. Now to send off our USCIS application and wait for a fingerprinting date. My guess at this point is we definitely won't be making our March 1st goal, but at this point I'm just thankful to have our homestudy finished.
On another exciting note, Dustin and I was able to work with Show Hope yesterday at a Steven Curtis Chapman concert, and met some amazing people. We feel so blessed to be getting sweeped into this adoption community. Everyone seems so encouraging and just wonderful to be around. We were able to get around 45 more sponsors for the Show Hope grant program and enjoy some great worship.
We will now be working on applying for several grants to fund the second half of our adoption. Along with our fundraisers we are expecting about 12-18 months to raise enough money for the second part of expenses. I have also ordered some more stuff to make the map adoption neclaces for a fundraisers. As soon as I get the stuff in, I'll post some pictures, and start taking orders! Until then, here' s a pic of us last night at the event!
