Home Study Completed

A big piece of the adoption paperwork puzzle is now complete!  The social worker has finished writing the home study, and after a few edits, will be mailing us official copies this week.  This means we can submit our paperwork to immigration.  Also, now that we have the home study document, we can apply for adoption loans and grants which will prove quite helpful.

The journey through infertility to God's direction to adopt was and continues to be a long one, but we continue to keep our eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith.  It is through trials like these that God demonstrates His awesome strength and our incredible need for Him.  He so longs for us to give Him complete control and how often do we play tug of war with Him over things in our lives, thinking there is something we can do to remedy the situation.  When we are weak, then He is strong!  God has a plan to bring a child to us; it may not be in the way I thought it would be, but we will trust Him, because His is plan for our lives always far exceeds our wildest dreams and imaginations.  Praise Him for His great and awesome love for us!!

  2. I am so proud you and Adam. Your faith images your Mom's - strong and ongoing. I know that your Dad is watching over you and smiling that wonderful huge smile of his. I can even hear his laugh. I miss him and know you do as well, but on his behalf I want to say that all the Spencers that went before us are lifting up your heart and spirit as you continue on the wonderful journey.
