I'm exhausted

We just finished five hours of interviewing and home-inspecting. I have been very nervous about both of these processes-but they went well.

We passed the home inspection except for the garage (ehem...Matt?!?) He needs to do a bit more work out there. We also need to get copies of our dogs' licenses. And there are a few more papers to turn in as well-a personal reference, an employer reference, new fingerprints, and it just never seems to end.

We didn't get all the way through the interviews, so we will be completing another three hours in the next week. Lots of personal questions...really personal. But our adoption specialist is so sweet, and really affirming with however we answer the questions. We'll find out what she really thinks when we read her 20-page report on us!

Thank you to all of you who love us and are thinking about us and praying for us. We feel so supported and encouraged by all of you. It's exciting and overwhelming. It's been a long day. I think I'll hit the sack early tonight.

Wow, I know fostering children is a huge responsibility, but I had no idea the process families went through. Hang in there through all the personal questions!
