We had our Homestudy visit today. It went well. During the visit, our caseworker wanted to talk to Jonah and ask some questions about his thoughts on the adoption...she got quite an earful! We told him not to be shy when she came and he didn't seem to hold back. In true little boy fashion, he wanted to show her every toy he owned...even opening the closets that she didn't ask to see into. Thankfully, I have nothing to hide 🙂
Hopefully the paperwork will be ready by the end of the month and we can proceed with the next step--Fingerprinting and Preparing our Dossier to Ethiopia. We will also begin fundraising. We're still exploring fundraising options and asking the Lord to reveal how He wants to fund His calling for our family. Several of the matching grants we are considering require a copy of your homestudy for the application process or else we'd have already started!
Thank you for keeping us in your prayers! We felt them!
Homestudy...Check! Next stop...Fingerprinting!
