I'm sure it's obvious to everyone that we only update our websites when it concerns our children. We have a lot of news, but lets start with Abby. Her mother has had a change of heart and we picked her up again on Saturday to continue the adoption process.
This time the termination papers are signed, so this begins the legal process that will give us protection that we didn't have before. We still have to continue the 6 month period and will also have to get an updated home study now that we are living in Iowa.
Yes, for those that we haven't contacted recently, Stuart has accepted a position at Midwest Industries in Ida Grove, IA. Ida Grove is an hour east of Sioux City and has about 2,500 residents. Midwest Industries produces ShoreLand'r boat trailers and ShoreStation dock and boat lift products.
We are in the process of finding a home and we hope to close in a few weeks. Right now the three of us are residing at the local Super 8. Our house has already been sold as right before listing, a nearby neighbor was insterested and offerred cash and we closed in 1 week! And he meant cash, because he showed up with a portion of the sale in a bread bag, 60,000 cash!!! He was sent back to the bank to get a check....
It has been hard leaving our family, friends and church support, but we have been called to this new home and are exited for our future.
Please keep in touch and we will update our contact info as it changes. Right now, you can continue to use our cell numbers, but use this hotmail account (firstname.lastname@example.org) while we transfer our internet service.
Stu, Tashia and Abby
