The adoption process

If you are reading this blog you know that we are in the process of adopting a baby boy from Vietnam. We began this process at the beginning of this year and have gotten quite a bit done so far. We are through the finding an agency, most of the paperwork and the homestudy. We are now waiting on the I-171H to come in so that we can get all of our dossier to our agency for all of their special touches and then on to Vietnam. We are very excited about all of this and have, with God's help, been able to do things in a timely manner. The passports were the hardest things to wait for but after 12 weeks they finally arrived. We just had to remember that God has a plan and sometimes we are not in charge of the time!! Hard for us to remember. We are now filling our time with all of the fun summer activities!!

Tifanie finished summer school today. Hard to believe she will be a Senior this year!! She is also spending her summer working at Perkins and hanging out with friends, and oh yes!! The BOYFRIEND--
Randy is filling his summer with baseball games and practices, football practice and boyscouts. He and Don just returned from boyscout camp and will leave again in a few weeks for their High Adventure. He will be a freshman this year. And yes, he also has a GIRLFRIEND--They grow up too fast!!
Emilie has spent a lot of her time this summer with Grandma and Papa. Papa even took her to garage sales recently--she found lots of stuffed animal treasures, as if she doesn't have enough!!

I have just been keeping busy with the kids. They keep me so busy that it makes the time fly by. I did finally start the painting on the baby's room wall. Well, actually, I have only drawn the Winnie the pooh on the wall but I am getting there. I will take pictures when I get it done.

I will post more when I have more information to pass along.
