First thing, Marty got a new job! He was taking a break from applying when a recruiter for a large company called him. Within a few days he was hired. He starts next week, and we couldn't be more excited. It is an amazing opportunity for him/us - I am so proud!!
Secondly, we have applied for our home study. We are in the middle of all of the paperwork for our case worker, but we are actually doing this thing. We are beyond excited about this! We are meeting with our case worker the first weekend of May . . . it will be here before we know it. Hopefully we will be able to get the medical assessments, background checks, & fingerprints done by then. The sooner we get all of those back and complete the paperwork the sooner we are to a baby. Once the home study is done we will apply with the agency and begin building our profile with them.
Please keep us in your prayers for Marty's new job and the beginning of our adoption journey.
