It's a bedtime tradition that began with Little Nutbrown Hare, and each night we try to outdo the last...I love you to the moon and the beach and the mountians...and one of my favorites, "to Jesus and the angels" and back...We never imagined we would be saying, I love you to Africa and seems like the furthest imaginable place, but yet in God's perfect timing, we plan to go.... to Africa and back!!! And when we get back, we will have another little cheek to kiss goodnight...please keep us in your prayers and enjoy this journey with us!

First Homestudy visit!

Yesterday we had our first meeting with our caseworker for our homestudy! We learned a lot more about what the "homestudy" involves...basically at the completion of the homestudy the caseworker will have compiled a paper about us, which will be a picture of who we are... This compilation will be what the government (immigration) and our placing agency (OWAS) look at to say we are suitable to adopt. We came home with a stack of "homework".. . This homework involves a bunch of notarized documents (medical,financial,etc) & 3 essays we each have to write. I have a feeling I will end up writing 6 essays! ;-) We hope to get this stack of paperwork done within the next month so we can then schedule our next meeting! Wish us luck!!!


  1. I'm so excited for you guys!! I know everything will go great and they will love you. We can't wait to finally meet lyla and Jacob's new little cousin! I'm positive God has the perfect child already picked out, and what a lucky little boy/girl that will be! Our prayers are with you all daily. :)

  2. Thank you so much, we truly appreciate the prayers!

  3. Hey Cara, Wow! You are one busy little family! How is the paperwork going? I am so excited and prayerful for ya'll.
