What's going on...

I know many of you are probably wondering what's going on with our adoption since we haven't mentioned it in a while. We haven't mentioned anything lately for two reasons:

1) I have been potty-training a puppy, home-schooling our children and getting ready for Christmas. I have barely had time to write out a grocery list, and definitely haven't made it on to our blog much. (Murphy seems to be settling down a little bit and is potty-training quite nicely, so hopefully we'll be out of this high-maintenance puppy stage soon.)

2) As I mentioned in a previous post, Luke had been trying to get in contact with an agency in the South where there seems to be a greater need for families to adopt minority infants. After several weeks of phone tag with a very kind, but incredibly over-worked caseworker, we're thinking that it doesn't look like that is going anywhere. Our plans were kind of in limbo for a few weeks because we weren't sure if we were going to be "redirecting" our adoption to the South. I didn't want to update the blog until I knew what direction we were heading.

While the Southern agency not working out was slightly discouraging, we were encouraged by some news we received from Bethany over the weekend. Since Friday we have learned about three different adoption situations, two of the situations involving twin boys! None of the situations will be decided immediately; we will probably have to wait a few weeks before we hear anything either way. It was really nice though to finally hear of something going on after several weeks of not hearing anything. Please be praying for these three birthmothers and this big decision in front of them.

So there's the official update! We'll try to keep the blog updated as we hear any more news.

Now back to potty-training, home-schooling, and getting ready for Christmas...
