Okay, so I'm not really good at keeping a blog updated. I think we can all agree on that now. :D Let's just say I didn't really feel very "chatty". I know that is so hard for some of you to believe, but it's true.

I finally have some news regarding our adoption. Our processor got us an extension (it seems they weren't doing those in June, but they are now) on our U.S. paperwork so we're still okay there. We just heard that we have Ministry of Interior approval, so all we have left is to have Janae's passport printed on the Haitian side of things. This is HUGE! Then one of our last major hurdles is Janae's birthmom's interview with the U.S. Consulate. It's scheduled for October 10th at 11:30 am. Please pray that she shows up. She missed several opportunities in June (see blog entries below), but it sounds like she's planning to go this time. We will waiting by the phone next Wednesday evening (even though we may not hear anything for days). I will do my best to post, so please don't call asking about it. :)

In other news, our beloved dog, Jake, died of anaplasmosis (a tick-borne illness) on August 15th. When you've had a friend for over 10 years, it's really hard to say goodbye. We miss him terribly. Since we couldn't stand the house being a wag-free and fur-free zone for long, we adopted a mostly Australian Shepard named Zinzy on September 11th. She was sick when we first got her home so we thought she was a quiet little thing. Apparently we were wrong. ;) She has found her voice once more and like to direct it in my direction on a regular basis. She's a goofy looking thing (one blue eye, one brown eye, one ear that stands up, one that's bent over, etc.) but she's a lot of fun. She's about 9 months old and is full of bounce. Her favorite hobby is catching grasshoppers and playing with them.

So stayed tuned. It could get exciting around here very quickly. Bryan is telling everyone three weeks to two months (you never know where the next road block could come from), but right now it's looking like Janae will be home for Christmas. YEA!!!

We really cherish your prayers right now! Thank you!!!
