A Sigh of Relief... and a Few Details...

So the phone call came in that I was waiting for today. The adoption worker's voice was soothing and calm and that really helped my nerves. I did fumble a few of my words.. but well.. that is just me!

She asked a few questions that they felt weren't addressed in our homestudy. They included things like:

How do we plan to homeschool our oldest two and balance having five children.. three, 2 and under?

What activities are the girls involved in with their peers?

After that we went over the little one's health history and I got a few pieces of information about her birthparents.

When I got off of the phone with the adoption worker, I recieved an email with the release of information form for our homestudy agency. I quickly filled that out and sent it back.

We should know at the very least a little more late next week.

Shortly after I took care of that, I found myself chuckling as I wiped the counter. This has been a wild ride. If we are indeed matched with this little one, I'll be able to share more. Let's just say that God is SO in the details. I never imagined when we started thinking about adoption in 2007 that I'd ever be able to hand the whole thing over to God and simply say, "Your will be done."

But I have and I can't wait to see the rest of the "ride."

And so we wait....

and hope.

I would ALSO like to know how you balance homeschooling the older girls and having 2 (and hopefully more) under 2?! I can't imagine! I get overwhelmed taking care of my one dog!! Hahaha.
