A very small and uneventful adoption update

Today I talked to Oasis to check up on our home study approval through Arizona (there are only 2 states that require you to be approved in your state first for international adoption, and we live in one).  They called the courts to check on it, and found out the court wrote them a letter requesting more information about our pool fence, and possibly other things but since Oasis hasn't gotten they letter yet, they aren't sure.  We have a pool net, but the law is written that you need a pool fence, because it was written before nets came out.  We have lots of reasons for using a pool net instead of a fence, so we wrote a letter to the courts asking them to approve our net since the goal is to have a safe pool, and we do.  I'm really praying they will accept it, as the last thing I want to do is spend money on a fence we don't need, since we do have a safe pool.  We'd appreciate your prayers in that as well.

On to happier news.....

My friend Stephanie that I used to teach with came by with a very special gift today.  Before I tell you what it is, I'll tell you a fun story about Stephanie.  She and I taught at Desert Horizon Elementary School and had a lot of fun being silly together.  We would hide funny things in each other's rooms to find at random times.  One time I stuck a huge wooden bird that was on a stick in her library center.  Her kids loved him and they named him Diego.  Last I talked to her, Diego still graced her with his presence.  Anyhow, back to our special gift....  Stephanie made Ramya a quilt that matches the girl's room perfectly.  It is absolutely beautiful and it's so nice to start collecting things for Ramya, as it makes it feel much more real.  Thank you Stephanie (and Stephanie, if you are reading this, I forgot to ask you how Diego is doing ;))!!
