I'm all over the place, in my mind at least, I'm mostly stationed right here at the computer and on the phone. Joe told me when we began that I wasn't to let this consume me, (I can be a wee bit obsessive) I told him I wouldn't.......how was I to know this would be all-consuming. I can't stop thinking about the part of our family that is currently missing but is living in Haiti right now (a Koper in a another part of the world!), as I type, and as I go crazy trying to get this paperwork done. So on top of all the paperwork that we are working on now for AWAA and all the paperwork to come from the Home Study Agency I get an application form AWAA for the orphanage we are going to request a child from.
AWAA has three orphanages (creches) in Haiti that they work with. Only one met our child requests. God made that easy for us. We are requesting a girl in the age range of 0 - 5 years and we are open to a sibling set, with the sibling being in the same age range, boy or girl. One orphanage has only boys, one has children only 6 years and older, and the other has girls and sibling sets! Needless to say I filled out the application and e-mailed it to Michelle (our family coordinator at AWAA) right away. She has e-mailed it to Haiti already and we now await an approval from them. Please pray that they would accept our family and that God would prepare the heart/hearts of the Koper/Kopers that He would have join our family.
