We are back to school! I have started in my new role as principal. Long hours at work followed by longer hours of completing paperwork for our adoption. Randell has been going back and forth trying to get all the pieces from doctors, bank, county appraiser, notary... Tomorrow he is driving to Austin to have most of our paperwork apostilled! One word...Exhausted!

Our home study is almost complete and we are plugging along with the dossier paperwork. For the past few nights we have been working on paperwork, and in the mist of it is so easy to become frustrated and forget why we are doing this. We have to redo one of our medical statements. The doctor wrote too dark on one of the dates and it looks like it was written over. One word...Frustrating!

Our daughter has been looking at books to read to Grady when he gets home. She can't wait! She will be such a good big sister. Tonight, I pulled up Grady's picture and just looked at him and prayed. I can't wait to have him home. One word...Blessed!

Is it possible to feel this frustrated, exhausted, and blessed all at once?!!!

Matthew 11:28:
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

Still plugging along with the paperwork. Things are going well so far, but still a lot more to do. It's all worth it though! Thanks for all the wonderful comments, support, encouragement and prayer.

It was a great day today when we checked our email and found our link to Reece's Rainbow page that had us in the "Committed Family" section with Grady's picture. It's hard to believe it's real at times. Very surreal. But we can't wait. We know waiting to travel is going to be the hardest part, and will probably seem like a life time. We just wish we could get him home sooner.

Under Construction

More to come soon!
