Some things have happened in the last few weeks which demonstrate to me how God is taking care of my family. I am opening my eyes to his Blessings and drawing closer to him. I really feel like this is a wonderful time for our family.
A few specific things I am thankful for are;
My friend Celeste offering to notarize all of our adoption documents for free. This is a huge blessing which will save us hundreds of dollars. EVERYTHING needs to be notarized and we have a very large stack of documents for her. She has told us she will do what ever we need.
I got my passport in only 2 weeks. With all the press about people waiting for months I was really worried. I need this before we can submit our dossier and was so thrilled when we got it a few days ago. Yeah!!
I am thankful that Dave and I were able to take the junior high youth group (22 of them) miniature golfing last night and we returned home with our sanity and all of our brain cells. It was great getting to spend some special time with our two junior highers. Also, their was only a small amount of drama from the girls. Those of you with junior high age girls will know what I am talking about.
I have so many things to be thankful for. I could go on and on. I think I definitely need to participate in Thankful Thursday this week.
I have one prayer request.
We are in the middle of what is called the "paper pregnancy". There is so much paper work to deal with. Hubby and I both HATE paperwork. We are not a good combination for this task.
Please pray that I would stay motivated and not procrastinate. We need to just get it done. We have made some good progress but I need to stay focused or we may not be getting our new daughter until 2012.
Our nine year old would definitely not be happy about that. He wants her here NOW.
Thanks so much to all of you for your support and kind words. You mean more to me than you could ever know.
