'No news' is 'good news'....??

Well...I thought my blog life would explode once we started this process....but I've really got nothing to report to you!  We're so close to scheduling our first homestudy visit (there was an issue with our county clearances...apparently the county never got our paperwork...all taken care of now!).  Hopefully our visit will be early next week - and our social worker says we should be done by the end of May!  In the meantime...we're working like crazy to get this dossier compiled.  It feels like we have not even made a dent...but we'll get it done, one form at a time.  We also are up against a bit of a timetable in Carter's country - there are rumors that it will 'close' for 3 months in the summer to switch some things around.  Ideally, we'd like to be fully submitted before this happens.  Seems totally impossible - but we know that our God is so big.  Don't believe it?  Check out this bloggin' mama - her blog fundraiser raised over $13,000!!!  HE is so good - and never ceases to amaze me! 

Speaking of blog fundraisers...ours is coming soon ( is!) and we have two young ladies who are willing to do something pretty crazy to help raise the money....more on this later :)

Since we've started this process, we've had lots of questions come our way.  I'm sure you have a question that you just HAVE to ask :)  Well - ask away!  (I know...I'm totally copying Adeye over at No Greater Joy Mom...!)  Leave your question as a comment on this blog, and I'll answer later this week. kind - no sassy stinker comments...thanks!!

One Thing I Know For Sure: If you're still reading along...I thank you :)


  1. I was just curious about the name change! What made you guys decide to change Antonio's name? (Of course, I LOVE the name you chose, for obvious reasons! :) I'm so glad to hear things are moving along.... though I'm sure the days seem like months! Constantly thinking of you guys!!!

  2. Of course we're still reading, silly! :-) And don't worry, you'll have plenty to blog about before you know it. Sorry, no questions I can think of right now...I'll come back if I think of something. :-)

  3. I am so happy to see Antonio has found his forever home! I too have fell in love with his adorable little face and would have adopted him in a heartbeat if my husband wasn't unemployed. We have a 31/2 yr old little boy with DS who is the love of our lives. Don't know what we did before he arrived...Enjoy your new son! God Bless you and Carter (Antonio)
