I forgot to tell you all that last week our social worker, Andrea called last week and our Homestudy is completely finished! That is great news for us and now the list of things left to be done is that much shorter!
We painted Malak's room a few weekends ago- it looks so cute! It is brown and light blue and i painted some big ole' polka dots on one wall...it turned out awesome, if I do say so. :) I will post pictures of it, but i am always at work when i blog so, i don't have pics on this computer. I have gotten a few complaints (from Andrew and...Andrew) that I need to have something interesting to look at on this blog, pictures and whatnot, so I will do my best to please the demanding readers (namely Andrew) and do more of that. :)
I have found that lately I am comparing our adoption process to everyone Else's...this wouldn't be such a bad thing except for that I am getting more and more frustrated that things aren't going as fast as I would like (which would be lightening speed). The funny thing is that we really are keeping a steady pace...I am pretty sure that Satan is just messing with my mind and trying to undo all the wonderful things that the Lord is doing inside of me and our family. God has been so gracious to us thus far and has blessed us beyond what we deserve...this child alone, no matter when he comes home, will be the greatest gift of our lives. For the most part I love to find other couples who are at the same point as we are, it is a wonderful thing to have in common!But, is anyone else looking at other blogs and thinking things like, "oooh, they got their passports way faster than me!" or "why does CIS hate me?? send me that letter darn it!" or other ridiculous childish things? Nope? Just me? darn it.
