Does Paperwork Make Me Crazy? Or was I this way before?

All of this running around and calling people has made me a little crazy. I'm attributing it to the move, the paperwork, and the $$ signs floating in our head (as in, look how fast it disappears!). Even I am driving myself crazy. Because I know that leaving several voicemails, then just showing up at an office for an answer to a silly homestudy question is not "normal" for me, righhht?

But that is what happens when you are SOO CLOSE to seeing your baby's face yet your fate lies in the hands of another person (or fingerprint agencies, insurance company, and the timeliness of a pay stub for proof of employment).

So I'm motivated, scatterbrained, and feisty. Watch out! I will call my case manager on you!


In other news, we are doing another fundraiser. We're partnering with Ordinary Hero through their shop. If you check "McGee, Rebekah & Will" as the affiliate we get 40% of the profits from your purchase. AND the stuff is adorable and super comfy. I wear my OH shirt quite often. Check the website here.

For other fundraising adventures, we're thinking about doing a blog auction. Like, post stuff on here and people bid on them. You see, we were fully prepared to handle as much of this adoption stuff as we could (the Lord has been very faithful to provide and we know He will continue to do so)... but a surprise home study (we weren't expecting to move in the midst of this process) and pending referral & travel fees make us a little nervous about the timing of it all coming together. So anything you would like to contribute to an online blog auction would be amazing and generous and wonderful. And I will mail you a personal copy of our cute baby's face when we have a picture, deal?

If you're interested in partnering with us in that effort, contact me at

THANKS SO MUCH!!! So so so appreciative of you friends for standing by us amidst this craziness. God is so faithful!


  1. i love that you said, i will call my case manager on you. hilarious. and you know i am in for the blog auction. we can talk about tomorrow when you call to vent about the craziness ;)

  2. I've been reading your blog for a couple months now. I love when i hear about other younger couples adopting. I remember going through all that. Brings back a lot of memories and All that paperwork Seems so overwhelming at times. I took the fost/ adopt route and after 2 1/2 years and 7 placements later i finally am adopting one of my current placements, 3 year boy. I'm so excited for you guys and can't wait till you finally "get that call". Good luck!
