lots of change...
and lots of blessings!

Number of showings for our house: 1.

Number of hours on the market before we had a full asking price offer: 20.

Our house: Officially under contract.

The number of houses we saw yesterday that looked like they came from a Criminal Minds episode: 1.

The house we'd like to have as our house: Offer placed today.

USCIS approval for Zoe's adoption: Received today.

First court date in Taiwan: A week from tomorrow. (We don't go there for it, though.)

Task for the afternoon: Considering school options for Jocelyn for the new house.

I think the key word for us for 2012 is "change!" 

(And "blessed." Oh, so very blessed.)

A year ago, we thought we'd never move from our current house. We thought we were a few years away from adoption. We thought we would homeschool instead of our current plan (which is public school, though that could change). We thought we were done with babies. We thought our lives were pretty stable and figured out.

But God.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, 
coming down from the Father of lights 
with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
{James 1:17}

thankful in all our other changes, that we have One constant!
