7 vials of Blood Later, my part in most of the tests is done. It's nice to have something else to check off the list! For a major needle-phobe like me, 7 vials is a big deal :D

Today has just been spent tending to various details. I'm printing pictures the genetic family wants to see and making sure the profile match letter is the exact-no-turning-back-now-because-we're-going-to-give-it-to-them way we want it.

I'm excited for tomorrow. I don't think we expect to walk away with an answer tomorrow (though it would be cool!) but I do hope that we have at least as strong of an inclination as to know whether or not we should continue seriously pursuing this or not. We'd love for you to join us in prayer for this meeting!

Oh, another piece of happy news is that our caseworker called and said our homestudy report went postal today! I hope hope hope the court processes it quickly. She said she sent one in a few weeks ago and it's already been accepted so at least a few weeks ago, the calendar was moving along fast. I hope the same is true now!

I'm off to nap. I have a feeling I won't sleep a wink tonight in anticipation of tomorrow so I'm going to sleep while I can get it!

I'll try to update tomorrow night!


  1. Praying for you and DH, Jen! Can't wait for an update!

  2. Definitely sending in the big prayers for you and some great results Wednesday. Ouch, 7 vials of blood is never fun, but hopefully today will go so well it'll be a distant memory!

  4. Aack, aack, aack!!! That's just WAY too much blood!!! I'm falling over just thinking about it, LOL!!!!!!

  5. I can't wait to hear how it goes tomorrow! I'll be praying for you!
