We completed the first part of our home study today. Boy, did I stress for nothing!! The lady who did our home study was the most laid back, down to earth woman who made us feel so at ease. In fact, she didn't even go outside of our dining room to look at the house (that I had spent the past 3 hours cleaning:). That was ok with me, though.
We showed her a video that Chad made for us of little Misha and she commented, "We've got to get him home fast!" At that point, I knew I could breathe a HUGH sigh of relief. I don't know why I allowed myself to get so anxious, I know that the Lord is in this and that He will work out everything for good according to His purpose and I know, from His Word, that adoption is His heart.
Anyway, I am soooo pumped (to say the least). Our next appt. is Tuesday night and she is willing to get the whole process done as quickly as possible, knowing it is a matter of life and death.
Again, God has shown up and blown me away. He is such a cool God, isn't He?!?!
