Waiting on a Form


We are still waiting on that form from Colorado. Other than that the agency contacted us today, and they are ready to approve our Final HS once that form shows up! The form should take another 3-4 weeks. We missed a signature and the forms had to be returned. They should be back in our hands on Friday. Baby steps, but steps : ) God is good!

So, as we wait, I keep practicing with my camera. I am so sad that the end of my photography class is drawing near. It has been a wonderful class! I hope you guys have great spring weather like we are here in Texas. It is amazingly beautiful!

All Things Bright and Beautiful


All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors,
He made their tiny wings.

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
He made them, high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

The purple headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day.

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

Cecil Alexander (1848)

A Setback Anyone?

The e-mail we sent to our agency today:

Dear M,

I am writing to inform you that our HS rough draft will not arrive to your office today as originally discussed. We were informed yesterday that one thing had been overlooked when gathering the needed paperwork. Rhea’s child abuse clearance was not obtained from Colorado. We will have the necessary paperwork needed to complete this request Thursday from our SW’s office. After obtaining the forms, Rhea will fill them out, sign, get them notarized, enclose a $30 cashier’s check and mail it all to Colorado.

We have been told that the turn around time will be 4 weeks. Once our SW receives the completed clearance, she will update the rough draft and submit the HS to you for approval.

Best regards,
Rhea & Shannon
