We have a caseworker!!!

We received a caseworker for our adoption process today!  Next steps are to get our home study completed.  I spoke with her this afternoon and we have our initial meeting next Friday!!!  Needless to say we are so excited!!!!   Our second meeting is scheduled for June 5th.  It will take about ten days to process.  After speaking with a representative from AIAA today, we should get a referral in 4-6 months after our home study is sent to Korea.  That could mean we would have our referral close to Chase's birthday or by Christmas!!!  

Please pray for us as we should receive our HUGE packet of paperwork tomorrow.  I've heard this is one of the most difficult aspects of the process (aside from the waiting).  I have started gathering items that we will need and organizing the paperwork that I've already filled out.  This isn't exactly the easiest thing to do since we are also in the middle of moving!  

I am constantly amazed at how God works in our lives.  My heart longs to know this little girl that will have a family to love forever.  I thank God for the support of our families and friends as we make this journey together.  


  1. Kelly & I just heard the great news!!! We are SO excited for you guys.

  2. How does the home visit work when you are moving out of your home and waiting to buy and build? Just wondering as I check up on you all!
