Ohhhhhhh boy!:)

I talked to the adoption agency owner and plan to do my home study visit in a few weeks (first part of Dec.)! (I am praying that God will make a way financially by then) Oh my #1. She sent me the novel we have to fill out! Oh my #2. I want to put off filling out forms and dive in all at once. Talk about daunting. I read over all the information needed, and my mind hasn't stopped racing since. Somebody talk me down!!!!:) Half of the questions require answers I have never given any thought to, and most people who know me (myself included) consider me a little overly analytical (i.e I think too much). I suppose it is a good thing to do some more self analysis in this process. So this weekend I am going to immerse myself in adoption paperwork and at some point try to coax my husband into doing the tiny part that I cannot do for him (pray for me:)). Now I just have to decide who I am going to ask to write reference letters for us. Hoo-boy! Scary and exciting!!!!!!:)

On another note, our new doggie (Stella) has adjusted wonderfully to our family. We are so pleased, she fits in just right. Our other doggie (Sadie) loves her and they play great together and tucker each other out enough so that there are long stretches of calm and two happy, tired doggies in our house. Sadie is lonely no more, and the kids and hubby are just tickled pink to have both of them. I was concerned that two dogs would mean double the work for me, since I am home with them all day, and more than anyone else. Surprisingly, getting Stella has cut my "work" in half. Sadie seems less hyper since we brought Stella home, almost like the older sister setting the example:), and HUGE bonus...Stella is housebroken!!!! She had one pee-pee accident the first night, and my husband is sure she tried to let him know she had to go out before she did it. I hope I didn't jinx myself by putting that out there. 

So things are good and nuts in the Posey household. Love it!

Hooray! I'm so excited you have your first visit set up. Just take the forms one at a time or it can seem overwhelming. Keep checking them off and before you know it everything will be done.

Praying for you all and the precious babe that will be joining your family.

Don't worry...everyone feels overwhelmed by the homestudy. You will get through it.

Glad Stella is adjusting so well!
