A Small Step

I was so excited to find our FBI fingerprinting results in the mail when we got home today!!!  It has been taking as long as 12 weeks to get them back recently, so I was gearing myself up for a LONG wait.  I even called last week and they said they could not tell me where in the process it was until it had been in their hands for 8 weeks.  It only took 6 weeks for us to get them back!  Thank you, Jesus!  One step closer to meeting our child!

Please pray if you think about it...our first home study visit is on Tuesday! I am excited to be another step closer!  I am wondering what all we will talk about!  My goal is to have all of the paperwork from the dossier complete by the time the home study is complete, so we can just send it all off!  I cannot WAIT to be WAITING to get that referral!!!!  I know that it will have a completely different set of struggles and difficulties, but it still seems like we will be a lot closer to bringing home the next Crenshaw.

Some awesome news:  our great friends, The Carrolls, passed court in Ethiopia, so their little Abigail is officially a Carroll!!  You can check out their story here.  We can't wait to meet that sweet girl!

Erin,
What a blessing to have at least one thing in this process go "quickly"! So excited for the home study to begin and am looking forward to hearing about the newest member(s) of your family soon.
