Orientation call tomorrow

I'm sorta bummed.....our orientation call with AGCI was supposed to be today, but UPS did not get out orientation packet here in time, so we had to reschedule for tomorrow. Just one day difference, but I am sooo eager to get along with the adoption!! I think everyone who sets out on the adoption road thinks they will work hard, fund raise quickly and get the paperwork in fast.... who doesn't want like mad to get their little one home??? However, the reality is, sooo much of the adoption process, even fundraising is totally out of our hands. I know that the Lord will provide financially and make straight the path for this child, but I am impatient and want it to happen NOW! It is so hard to go about the duties of the day, do what I must do, all the while looking at my sweet kids and "seeing" the face that is not there... the little one waiting for us whom we must fight to get to! I can only press on, but I cannot speed it up. Until then.... I sew :) Here are a few of the items I have made this week...

The count down is on. We have 11 weeks and 3 day to basically come up with just over $9000. This will cover contract fees, the homestudy fee and a few other fees. After the homestudy we can apply for a lot of adoption grants, etc; this first set of fees is the big hill to climb.

Back I go to sew :)
