First off, today was an insanely busy day for me.
I was the official photographer for a big school board event for about 200 kids. I helped put together the final slideshow (while taking photos until the last moment). I was being powered by the Holy Spirit because on top of my responsibilities at the event, I had to leave work for my students (who had to be farmed out to different classes -- I owe my colleagues BIG TIME!), and I am sick as a dog. I really should've spent today in bed coughing up a lung (and was told by our school trustee that I needed to just stay home -- yeah, right!).
By the time I got home I was running on fumes and your prayers.
Lucky for us our social worker was late (her fault totally), so when she arrived her home inspection was super quick. Mr JB said that she seemed to want more decorating tips than anything.
We worried for absolutely no reason! Don't get me wrong, I'm glad that we did all the prep and that our house is technically ready for a placement. I'm type-A, I wanted my house to meet my standards.
The only thing we need to wait for is my criminal check from France (which I reapplied for this evening because I still hadn't received the one I applied for in June!). We also have to fill out the paperwork for our local Children's Aid Society.
Our social worker says that we could have everything wrapped up in a month.
I am so grateful for all of your kind words and support. I could feel all of your holding me up. I really could.
Now that it's all over I'm lying in my bed, exhausted. It's amazing that I have the wherewithal to post!
Mary, Undoer of Knots, pray for us!
