We're Still Here

I felt like we went MIA after the pumpkin patch, but really our computer just died.  My friends and family would tell you that patience is not one of my virtues, therefore, I didn't even try to post from my phone.  There is a lot happening in the Hutson household.  We are scrambling to finish getting ready for Isaac.  I have some work left to do in what will be the boys' room.  I just really like saying the boys :) 

Our social worker was here a couple weeks ago to do our homestudy update.  She and her husband have adopted multiple children so it is always fun to visit with her.  She had our update done crazy fast!!  That week was a whirlwind of paperwork.  We have been working on our 2nd acceptance packet (this is a new step due to the new adoption laws) and really thought we had plenty of time to get that done.  Well, we were wrong.  Mat called while I was getting ready for Brenda's visit and said that our social worker at Holt wanted to know if there was anyway we could have our 2nd acceptance packet to her on Friday.  This was Tuesday.  I wasn't sure whether I was going to cry or possibly throw up so I decided to take a break, text my support team, and water my roses.  God moved some mountains and our paperwork arrived in Oregon at 10:07am.  By 5:00 that evening our social worker had gone through it and it was prepped to go to Korea.

The next step in this crazy process is getting submitted for EP.  Isaac has to have an emigration permit to be able to leave Korea.  We hope to be submitted sometime this month!  There are still a few steps after that, but we are moving in the right direction.

In other news, Andrew will be graduating from Kindergarten next week.  I feel like I blinked twice and my son went from


I have got to remember not to blink!  I am so blessed to be this young man's mom.  I have so much more to say, but I'll leave that for next time.

P.S. I'm not sure who has been donating to Isaac's account on Reece's Rainbow, but THANK YOU!  I wish I could thank you in person!  Please know how much we appreciate your support!
