Woo Hoo!

I just finished the 8 hour online Hague Training Course!  Believe it or not, Drew (please forgive me for throwing you under the bus), my non-reading husband, finished his this morning at 11am, before me!  I love seeing him so motivated and passionate about the same thing I am!  A brief update.  We finished our Home Study interviews the week we started them (almost a month ago)!  The completion certificate from this Hague Training will complete our Home Study and if I understand correctly (which I rarely do) officially start the clock counting down to our referral!  We also got an e-mail from our social worker that there are four families working on their dossier and we make the fifth.  I am certainly not sure about this, but that would seem to make us 5th in line assuming everyone’s status remains unchanged!  We are so excited!  The home-study interviews went extremely well.  Basically, we need to get a fire extinguisher.  Not really sure where to buy one, I am assuming at Home Depot, Lowes, or Wal-Mart!  This is such an exciting adventure for our family.  As a matter of fact, I may have mentioned this before, but Brooks mentioned at the dinner table a few weeks ago, “I wish my black brother was here to eat dinner with me!”  Seriously, God is just that good to us!  Brooks has come so far!
