Not a lot of time here so lets get this post rollin'

So I am woefully behind in an online, go at your own pace class I am registered for this semester. It is a basic intro to research class and it has one major flaw in my book--you have to go at your own pace and my current pace for this class is zero. I have to hustle my bustle to get it done before the semester is over. I have sequestered myself the rest of the morning to get three of the nine lessons done. I think it can happen, it is only a one unit class so with some effort I can be done in a few weeks.

One of the reasons I am behind in the above is that my other classes are taking a big bite out of my time. Hebrew is awesome but takes mucho amounts of time. I am getting a strong A right now but to keep that up I end up spending lots of time with my nose in my book and listening to the vocab in the car. So far so good. My class in Historical Theology is fun as well. There is a lot of reading but having the love of history in me, I find it fascinating. We took a test this week. Four questions, two hours...go!! I took the whole two hours and I have know idea if what I wrote was exactly what the professor will be looking for. I did pull out the big boy vocabulary and I used "elucidate" and "milieu" as well as a few others.

On the adoption front. I know I haven't posted about this in a while and there has been a reason. Jill and I have done all the classes, filled out all the paperwork, jumped through all the hoops, etc. We though that was the hard part, but we were wrong. The next process is not only tough mentally but also emotionally. The process goes like this. Our social worker works as our advocate and interacts with social other social workers who try to match us for potential placement of children. Usually once the social workers have gotten together they give us a call and give us some information and ask if we want to continue. If we agree they gather all the paperwork and make a presentation. All the details or problems try to get worked out and hopefully a connection is made. It is hard to not get your hopes up when you get that phone call. And let me tell you it is also hard when you know you need to say "no". We have been matched and unmatched a few times and each time it is very hard. For now we just wait for another phone call and start the process again. We covet your prayers not only for us but for the children that will be placed in our home and also for those who will not. More updates on this to come...

That is about all for now, I have to get back to homework. Talk to you all soon.
