Exhausted and Overwhelmed, but Grateful!

23 07 2010

Hello friends,

It’s been a few days since the last post, but a lot has happened in these last few days on the adoption homefront.  Only 2 more days until John will be home, praise God!!  We miss him desperately!

On July 20, we were assigned a social worker to get us through the homestudy process.  So I will start collecting these documents soon.  We were also assigned a family coordinator from America World to help facilitate the dossier to send to Ethiopia.  I have to admit that I am VERY OVERWHELMED with this whole process.  Hopefully, I will be able to break up the BIG tasks into smaller ones that seem manageable, though right now, it sits in my inbox.  The sorting process begins tonight, after the two little girls go to bed.

Please continue to pray for our journey to bring our little boy home.  Also, please pray for our social worker and family coordinator.  We are excited to be right in the middle of all the chaos, even if it is exhausting and overwhelming!!
