(Mostly) Wordless Wednesday

You know what that is?!


We are waiting on two pieces of paper and the completed home study, which all should arrive any day now. When it arrives, we will make all the copies, get everything notarized and ship it to our agency.


I thought that when I completed all of this, I would be done with paperwork.

Then I began applying for grants.

Than I almost cried.

Then I got over it because each paper gathered is a step closer to meeting our daughter.

Day 10: I believe we are going to make it through the paperwork phase. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting a tiny bit brighter.

Happy Wednesday to you all!


  1. Awww Kelli what a roller coaster…you are such a great encouragement to not give up! The Lord will surely bless every tear AND paper you fill out! I wish I could help financially but I just cannot at this time..but I will definately continue to pray that the Lord would move this process forward quickly!
    Blessings to you!

    • Thank you, Shari Lynne! Prayers are so very coveted and are as much a part of The Story as are financial contributions. We need your prayers and I am grateful to have them. Thanks for the encouragement! 🙂

  2. I almost had a panic attack looking at ALL of that paperwork! Wow!

    Praying for you! You’ll be closer and closer, one piece of paper at a time!

  3. I admire you for doing this, Kelli!

  4. You will! You will make it!!! 😀

  5. It’s that old adage…”How do you eat the elephant? One bite at a time.”

    Only this time it’s…”How do you make it through the adoption red tape? One piece of paper at a time!”

    Be sure to back chocolate chip cookies right before your home study! 🙂
