There is nothing to report because our family profile was not submitted.

............Insert long dramatic sigh here...................

Instead Ianna's case was discussed at length, and the options for her. (which are not many.) I'm not able to give all the detail. Some day, I'll be able to come back and fill in the blanks. All I can say for now she  needs even more prayer that she did last week. How can that be? How can I ask for even MORE?

In the meantime, we are plugging along on our homestudy. We hope to have it done in the next three weeks.

Documents left to collect:
Physical for me and Angela

Left to do:
Attend Class on 9/13
1 Homestudy visit

Expenses left:
Homestudy: $1300 (due at second visit, sometime in the next two weeks)
Adoption Agency: $2000 (due asap)
Country fee $8000 (when we travel, whenever that is)
Airfare: $3500 (this will depend upon if all 3 of us go, or just me. Right now the plan is all 3 of us. Also includes airfare for the child we're bringing home.)
Hotel, meals, etc: $1500

The fact that we had to buy a car this week set us back a bit so we're scrambling a little to come up with our next $3300. If we had another 6 weeks we'd be fine, but we don't. Our prayer? That the four other puppies sleeping in my office get sold, because getting them sold will cover the cost! Our puppies are ALWAYS sold by now, so it is very strange to us that our phone has been silent. I've even had people test my website email to make sure it's working! Once this next $3300 is paid and our homestudy completed there are a couple of older child adoption grants we can apply for. Then things won't seem quite so scary!
