1st Home Study Appointment

OKay. We had our first home study appointment with Catholic Charities last week. Our social worker is super great, and the stack of papers we left with was a little intimidating at the time, but is just plain SCARY now! I did not even realize how difficult filling out paper work would be with two little ones running around and wreaking havoc. Basically filling out one paper = one room demolition in my house....So if you come to my house and it's a disaster you will know that I was trying to get a little paperwork done that day, so don't judge!
Our social worker insinuated that we may have a baby boy much sooner than we thought. Like much Much MUCH sooner! She said once we get on the waiting list we could expect a referral in less than a seven months-ish. And if we are on top of things we could be on the waiting list in a couple months. But as stated in the previous paragraph, being on top of things has proven to be a challenge! This news is kind of overwhelming on a couple of levels. 1.) Nora and Nolan may be much closer in age than we anticipated (but how fun will that be for them growing up??!) and 2.) We gotta get to gettin' it on the fundraising (but we know God will provide and are really trusting in Him). The more we are crossing off the list the more real this all feels and I can't wait to get a picture of our baby boy!! BUT-first things first. Paperwork.

**We know that God's timing is perfect and we will have the baby that He has chosen for our family whenever it is perfect for HIS plan...NOT according to ours**

Okay...headed off to do some paperwork :)
