GREAT NEWS- we're moving forward

I found out today that our Application Part 2 has been approved and we can move forward with the Home Study!!!!   This is such huge news for us as we have been waiting patiently and found out we were pretty much approved with a few missing pieces from other people needed.    This is where I have to say how much I LOVE DILLON INTERNATIONAL!!!!  From the get-go they have just been a dream to work with and continue to be there when I need them every step of the way. Our program director has changed as our original one has accepted a supervisory position with a foster care organization but we were so happy to find out that the person taking her place was the program director we had met when we were in Tulsa a few weeks ago and loved that we would be working with her.    We also found out that our case worker would be the one other member of Dillon that we met that weekend, Rebecca, and we are also very excited about that as we loved her too and were really hoping for her! 

So now we get to cut a couple checks $3,500 and $1,500 which thankfully to saving, fund-raising and some generous friends helping out too, we do have and are so ready to start getting it where it needs to go!  We will need to send in about $10,800 total from now until we are placed on the wait-list and we are very close to achieving that, hoping this last t-shirt sales is a big hit!  

Speaking of t-shirts...don't forget to enter our contest (as many times as you would like) and let me know when you do.  You have until next Friday so tell all your friends and family too.  Also if you just want to contribute and get a t-shirt for yourself, friend or family member you can do so HERE


  1. YAY!! SO excited for ya'll! Now you can move on to the home study!! Another step closer! :)

  2. Yay!! Excited for you!! We are planning on coming to the Queen in November as long as nothing comes up. It will be great to see you guys again!!

  3. That is great news. Praying your homestudy is completed quickly!

  4. Yay! Forward movement! EVERY step COUNTS!!!

  5. Congratulations! You guys are moving along quickly!! We applied for our home study (we live out of state so we need to use a different agency) but the amount of paperwork they need is close to the amount needed for part 2 and so we feel like it is never ending! Just keep pressing on! Blessings to you!
