Pray - prayer has power. Pray for the process; there's the home study, waiting, USCIS approval, waiting, the dossier, waiting, travel, and then waiting again for final travel. Also, pray for Lana and all orphaned children throughout the world.

I am also starting fund raisers. My first one is flowers! This will run until April 22. There is a $6.00 flat rate for shipping. Orders will start shipping out in Mid-April (just in time for planting season).
This is where I am in the process of many steps. Working on the home study!
Home Study - A home study is an integral part of the adoption process. In fact, approval to adopt typically hinges on it. It's a detailed, written report on your family. It's typically prepared by a social worker and compiled through interviews and visits to the home. A home study can take months to complete. It consists of a family background; your neighborhood, community and its schools; your physical health; financial statements; criminal clearances; references; the interviews and home inspection.
