Final Home Study Next Week!

Our home study last week was quite uneventful! Daren and I both had separate 10 minute interviews, turned in some paperwork and we were done.

Our social worker is coming Monday, August 31st for the final study. This is the big one! She comes to our home and sees us interact as a family. She is also going to interview McHaney... yes, that should be hilarious! Anyway, I'll have a full report after that one for sure!

First Home Study

Well, our first home study was exactly as I expected... like drinking from a fire hose! But, it was a lot of good information and our social worker thinks there is a good chance "baby sis" will be with us by NEXT SUMMER!!!!! :)

We are in the process now of filling out all of our home study paperwork and doing all of our homework. This includes each of us writing a 2-3 page autobiography. I've done mine and it is ridiculously hard to fit your entire life into 3 pages. We also had to fill out essays on our thoughts about adoption, birth parents and marriage. I haven't used my brain that much since college!

Anyway, we're just about finished with this step and we'll be moving on to our dossier soon. I expect our next meeting to be sometime next week.
