Renewal Time

I figure this is as good a time as any to post the next pages in our profile book. It's Mike's turn!

Over the last couple of weeks, a lot of people have asked me how the adoption is going. It's going. We're still with Bethany and we are renewing our home study this week because, if you can believe it, it's been a year. Mike and I finished the paper work and our social worker is coming for the home visit on Wednesday. We almost have the amount of the adoption saved and then it'll be time to save for the lawyer fees. Oh, and we also found out that Grant Jaden is still in interim care because his birth father is completing a family plan and his aunt is completing her own home study.

Autumn had a dream last night that she found an egg and a little girl hatched out of it and we took her home. I told her that, who knows, maybe someday we will have another baby although he or she probably won't be from a chicken egg.

I'll sign off with a poem by our friend Ken O'Shaugnessy. I posted about the home study on Facebook and he sent me this. I cried a little because it's so, so touching and true.

Welcome again to our home
It's a lot like it was last time
It's full of rooms with stuff
A complete complement of parents
A child who is everything

It has wide open arms
Joyfulness brimming
All the love that will fit
We're all full up
Because only a home that's full
Needs more children
