Adoption update #26 A Switch

post #26
Well, its been a while since my last post. Life has kinda been busy with the holidays and adding 2 new teens. Now that we are up to 4 teens in the house and our son is home from college. Its been the "life is a party, throw out boundaries kinda thing going on a round here! " Anyway, all of us are adjusting. We had an awesome Christmas and are looking forward to a great 2016.
On the adoption front, nothing much has progressed except to say that we are changing home study agencies. Our other home study agency was great but they were located all the way in S. Cali and having a SW travel all the up here for home visits was going to be costly and there were a few other issues that were making accomplishing somethings difficult - on our part. 
So it came across our paths of a new agency in the Sacramento area that could do our home study and who would accept our past training and experience. 
Its going to allow us to complete the home study quicker and in the long run less expensively even though we are losing money on leaving the other agency. I am glad this is working out and it makes me a little excited to get it going. 
Also, on a side note, one of our friends got their I600a approval for immigration in a little less than 2 weeks and that is encouraging news. 
We can't start that process until our home study is complete. Please continue to pray for the finances as well.  Once we get the home study completed, we can start applying for some grants and donations towards our adoptions. Duane will have to make 1 short trip to Uganda with me and I will hopefully only make one staying til the adoption is completed to avoid two trips. We are wanting to take the rest of the kids with us to Uganda. We think it will do a few of them good to see others from their past and where they came from. So we are praying about that as well. We appreciate your prayers and will keep you updated.
