We went to the house and decided that the only things on the long list the inspector gave us that has to be fixed were the windows and the asbestos tape that is fraying. We put that in writing and gave them to list of things that were also needed we weren't asking for and sent it off. We offered to fix the windows ourselves if they gave back 1000 at closing. WE don't have it or we would just go ahead and close as is. in order to adopt we must have working windows with screens. There is no way around that. So their answer so far is nope, can't do it. Our realtor asked what they were able to counter offer and we are waiting for an answer. Right now it looks like the deal will die here. I have some stuff packed and there is a rental sign in front of our house. Now what??!! Oh well if God is closing this door he will open a window somewhere I'm sure and it will be even better. Right now it is hard to imagine a better yard but we'll see what God has in mind, He knows best.
