Thoughts on the Meaning of Life…..by Todd Helmkamp

Forward Progress!

Posted by Vogeler on August 19, 2011

Well, we got all of our documents and the contract notarized yesterday, so we’re about ready to send that in to our agency.  A very gracious family loaned us the money for our application fee (almost $6,000!) interest-free, so that’s a great blessing.  We’re getting ready to submit our loan and grant applications, so we should be in good shape financially.

Apparently, not many people want girls (why, I don’t know), especially toddlers, so we’re at the top of the list and could get our referral at any time after our docs are turned in.  From our referral date, it would be around 5-9 months until we go to bring her home!  I can’t believe how quickly things can go.  It’s kind of frightening, but we’re really learning how to trust and lean on God during all of this.

Yesterday was a bit difficult with the boys, they were pretty crazy and jumping on each other, fighting, etc., and I actually caught myself thinking, “We’re introducing another child into this mix?!?”  But hopefully she’ll be on the quiet side.  🙂

And I start grad school on Monday.  Perhaps my timing is  bit off.  🙂

  1. How totally exciting! I am so happy for you. I actually LOVE when it comes to handing over big checks….it feels like we are getting closer when that happens. We don’t have to pay our “whopper” one until we send our dossier to India….so we’re still saving, saving, saving.

    Sorry you had a rough day yesterday. 😦 If you ever want good book recommendations that have helped us a ton, I’d be happy to oblige. 🙂

  2. I would love some book recommendations! Thanks!
