Update: October 17, 2014

      Well, I've been a bit delinquent in posting recently. Things have been a little crazy to say the least. I've been out of town for several weeks now. I am coming to a close on 3 weeks in Switzerland on Saturday, which is also the day we fly back to the states. DH and Red are at home holding down the fort and watching the dogs. Red's volleyball team is 4-2, and I've been out of town for everything but the very first game. It's 1 am here, but only 7 pm EST, so technically I guess it's an October 16th update for everyone back home. I just wanted to let everyone know that my out of state background checks came in two Fridays ago. It took our licensing SW a few days to get everything together and passed on to her supervisor, so our application was officially submitted to the state last Friday. There are only a small group of people at the state level to review the applications, so we have been told it could take anywhere from one weeks to two months for our case to be reviewed and either approved or denied.
      Please keep us in your prayers as we wait, and also hold the other foster parents from our county, especially the families we were licensed with, in your prayers too as they are settling into new routines, planning on moving, trying to adopt their placements, still waiting on placements, etc. We are so blessed to know so many other wonderful Christian families serving our community, and we will certainly miss those that we are loosing to transfers/moving. We pray that the Lord's will be done as the court decides what happens next in all of our journeys.
