waiting on homestudy

Our last homestudy meeting was on March 13.  Our adoption specialist said that it would take a month to get it written.  Here it is April 17 and we're still waiting!  I've been gathering our dossier documents and that's been slow too.  Our police clearance was a copy (and she was mad that I said I needed the original) and it luckily said I was born in 1671 - so she had no choice but to redo the work.  On our medicals, I accidently started Jerry's birthday off with a 0 and he was born in November - so I have to get the doctor to redo his.  I thought I'd need a clearance letter for medicine, but really its for surgeries, so I have to get that redone too.  God has his reasons for these trials, so we'll just wait them out.

I have a dear friend who was just diagnosed with breast cancer and will be having surgery soon.  Would you please keep her and her family in your prayers?  She's too young for this disease, but she's doing super!  She is definitely showing her faith through this trial.

Here are a few pictures from spring break.  We visited Seaman in St. Louis.  He'll be going to China this summer to work in his company's officer in Shanghai.  We're hoping to visit him when we go for our adoption trip.
 Reese liked the butterfly gardens.  The blue morpho butterflies were huge.
 Hanna with her beloved hippos!  Hippos are her favorite animals.  Not sure why..
Perfect photo bomb while on spring break in St. Louis!
