Ray is in El Salvador this week on a mission trip. It is exciting to have him go, but this has put a hold on the adoption process for this week. When he returns, we will have two more interviews to complete for our home study. Last week the kids and I got our physicals. Faith and Quinn weren't very happy about it when they found out that they each needed a shot, but we made it through.
We have started to brainstorm our favorite boy names. No one has been in agreement yet so this may be the hardest part of the whole process. Any suggestions???

It has been a mad dash to collect paperwork and get things signed and notarized. Next we will embark on the interviews necessary for our homestudy. Things are moving along at a steady pace and we hope to have our homestudy completed by March. Then it will be on to more paperwork as we prepare our dossier which will be submitted to Ethiopia. When it's all said and done they should know everything there is to know about the Powers' family.
