Jessup says

For a nice laugh, just ask Jessup what the baby's name is.

He'll tell you, "Lucas." Completely straight faced.

Ask him again and he'll tell you, "AR-WYN." Like you are hard of hearing.

He's got his own little sense of humor, that's for sure.

What's up...

We are working on filling out all the paperwork required for our homestudy. A homestudy is very in depth, asking for information on our finances, insurance policies, medical history and current health, autobiographical info, extended family information, etc. etc.

We have gathered all the documentation we need for the homestudy and just need to assemble it in the required format and order.

An answer to prayer is that things have really moved along at amazing speeds. Our passports got here in record time, Arwyn's social security card and birth certificate got here within 10 days after her birth!

Thanks for your prayers- keep praying for Godspeed! And keep Brilyn in your prayers as she contemplates and deals with the prospect of having an older sibling. She is a little worried about how that is going to affect her role in the family. (Right now she is the go-to girl and she pretty much runs the place.)

We are trusting God to provide all we need in every aspect of this adoption- spiritually, emotionally, and financially.

2 Corinthians 9
8 And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others. 9 As the Scriptures say,
“They share freely and give generously to the poor.
Their good deeds will be remembered forever.”
10 For God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.

Thanks for your encouragement and support!
