So today at 8 am we had our first home visit! Honestly, I was pretty scared. Worried that someone I didn't know was coming into our home, checking us out and deciding if they thought we were normal enough people bring home a little one. Talk about nerve racking!
All of our fabulous support system kept telling us not to worry, that the home study agency wants us to adopt a child as much as we do. And while that makes total logical sense, my mind hasn't worked very logically lately :) Well, turns out our friends were right. It wasn't scary, it wasn't a white glove inspection of the house. It was a 2 hour conversation about us, who we are, why we chose to adopt, and how we think this will change our lives. It was actually everything I have been dying to talk about for a long time!
So, PRAISE JESUS we are still moving forward!
Next up we still have ton of paperwork, we have individual interviews (Sept, 19th if you wanna pray!) and then everything gets reviewed, notarized, and sent off so we are officially done with the entire home study in October!
If you wanna be involved in all this adoption frenzy we have a few awesome ways for you!
1. PRAY! We always need it. Like seriously, all day everyday forever :)
2. You can purchase a piece of art from my GatheringImpossible line. 100% of the funds come straight over here! Plus you get a great little reminder to hang on your wall! Visit my ETSY SHOP

4. Mark your calendars for a Arts & Craft Beer night at Southern Brewed in Columbia, SC! Saturday October 15th Reed and I will be hanging out at Southern Brewed, music, art and good friends with a percentage of all sales going towards our adoption!
