Hi, I'm Jeannie and most know I'm Misty's mom. I am going to try to write about the Anderson Adoption from a grandmother's view. The one thing Misty is very short of is time, and it takes time to write a blog post. The only reason we moved to Missouri from New Mexico in September was to be close to the family, never knowing we would be a part of this special time in their lives.
I thought I would add a few of the things that are going on, plus share a couple of "Thank You Jesus" stories. As Misty has talked about, the paper work has been overwhelming and has taken not just hours but whole days. They have made two trips to Springfield which is about 5 hours from here. Every paper has to be notarized and certified and it has to be perfect. So far they have had three meetings with the County Recorder. It looks like those papers are now perfect! Please help us pray that they can get a birth certificate for Ferran from the State of New Mexico. They are having a very hard time with that. A special "Thank You Jesus" story was when everyone needed a physical check-up. That doctor visit usually costs at least $100 each and they needed 11! Our wonderful, Christian, family doctor charged $120 total. He is also researching Down Syndrome to help take care of the girls.
Well, I'll save some of the other happenings for another day.
