Sorry it has been so long since the last post. It's been a little busy around here, but everything is going well!
The medical form is a really important piece of this puzzle. This morning we went to the doctor to finish that up. We had to have a lot of lab tests, hearing tests, vision tests and HIV tests. We were in the office praying that all of the labs were back to complete the form. It didn't dawn on me to pray that all of the results would be normal. Sometimes I take good health for granted. Thank you Lord that everything came back well and we are very healthy.
The last step is getting the doctor and the notary together in one room so that the form can be notarized. Please pray that this will happen today because the doctor is going to a conference next week and will be out of pocket. Nothing is impossible with God!
The medical form is key to get the home study finished as well as important for our dossier. The home study has to be finished and then sent to USCIS (Immigration) so that we can be approved to bring Noah home. Is any of this making sense? All of these pieces fit together and rely on one another.
Today we will mail more documents for the home study. After today we only need our background checks and medical form, if that doesn't get done, to finish our part of the home study. Wow!
And we will also mail my birth certificate and reference letters to our home state to get them certified.
We ordered a marriage verification letter which came in the mail this week. It ended up being a big waste of time and money because it was not what we needed at all. I called the county and it costs $3 for a certified copy of your marriage certificate. To save time, my parents are driving to the courthouse to get that for us and then mailing it to the Secretary of State to be certified. Hopefully this will save us the time we wasted. Thanks Mom and Dad for your help and Katy for printing the letter.
Thank you Lord for blessing us with good health. We know your plan is perfect for our lives and this adoption. And that includes your time line. Your will be done! We praise you!
