Beloved friends and family, we remained overwhelmed by your generosity. We spent the past 10 days in a whirlwind of straddling two worlds: co-preaching a HUGE youth conference and our ongoing adoption (finding a notary at a conference center was not as hard as we thought). We are heading into the second conference, and are exhausted from the long days and the mental energy of being here when all we want to focus on is preparing our home and hearts for the Brand New Day!
We have been able to skype with the birth mother once here, and she is more than ready to have the baby. The c-section is scheduled for August 7, and we hope and pray baby doesn't show up early. 😬
We have a home study visit scheduled for next Monday, right after we arrive back in CA, and then full steam ahead on baby-proofing and nursery decorating!
We won't know details about making travel plans or any plans once we get into Missouri - we know we will stay inn Jefferson City until we receive permission from a judge to leave the city (after we visit a pediatrician, etc.) then we have to stay in state for a few days or week until we get a court date to receive permission to travel across state lines. Then we come home to California!
We are still astounded by your generosity. Truly, we have never experienced anything like it.
We love you all,
Kevin & Katie
