Busy, Busy Day

Pin It
What a very busy day we had today. We actually had to set an alarm, gasp! Our feet hit the floor and we started running. The homestudy started promptly at nine. It was a wonderful visit. Lots of reminiscing about my childhood and wonderful memories of how Hubs and I met. Our social worker drank coffee with us and listened to our excitement about bringing a beautiful Ethiopian baby into our home.

After lunch Hubs and I headed to town for our adoption physicals. We had back to back appointments. The nurse asked me "Why aren't you adopting from the United States?" God gave me the words and without a beat I replied because we are all God's children and we are not constrained by borders. Yay God! That lead to a little witnessing on my part, more YAY God!

We zoomed back home. Little Bit had been out with Nana and Pap Pap since this morning and our day was no where near over. I got a call from my Grandma when we got home. She wanted Nick to put new windshield wiper blades on her car. You don't put this stuff off for my Grandma. She is 85 so I figure if she asks we can comply. Nick raced in to Grandma's. Little Bit came home while he was out. I threw together some breakfast for dinner and we shoveled it in.

We threw Little Bit into car and took him to music class. He really enjoyed it and so did I. Hubs not so much but he tried. Then we raced back home where Hubs booted us out of the car and he made his way to the Deacon meeting at Church. Little Bit finally crashed at 8pm. Whew, what a blessedly busy day!

  7. you are going to get that US adoption question a lot- so good for you that you had an answer, LOL. wait till they ask you in front of the child if they know he's adopted or if they both have the same daddy, LOL....ahhh, people!!!!

  8. Sounds like a full day and a blessing to be able to witness at the spur of the moment.

  9. A very busy day! I hope you hear from the home study soon!

  10. So glad your homestudy went well. Yay for you and your promptings to say what you did. I love to share my testimony with others!

    Sounds like things are really beginning to move...my heart is so excited for your adoption!

  11. Yay that the home study went well and that you have your physicals out of the way. I would think that because international adoptions are becoming more and more common that people would understand a bit better, but I love the response that you were prompted to give...it is so true!
