Josiah has had a few days to process the news of the adoption and is ready to share! Today he excitedly told a friend at church and a policeman all about a new girl who was coming to live at his house after his birthday to be his new sister.  The friend gave a quick glance at my tummy and I just laughed…no way am I ready to go through another crazy Dean pregnancy right now! It’s neat to see him already including her in our prayers and everyday conversation.

Philip and I got our first round of fingerprints done today and I’ll be ready to send in all the info for our background checks tomorrow. We’re still waiting on the director of Reece’s Rainbow to get back in town (sometime early next week) to officially match us with ‘Grace’ and then we need to start fund raising pretty aggressively. We already have the first one planned and it will be ready to go as soon as we get word from RR…and it should make many of female friends pretty happy (their husbands might not be so happy with us)! We’re continuing to pray about other ideas…everything from a dinner and silent auction to garage sales to me trying to get an online tutoring job for awhile.  We continue to ask for your prayers for us as we try to balance what needs to happen for this adoption and our everyday lives.
