Today, we had our home visit. We were really nervous and have spent the last two weeks getting the house ready for the big meeting. We were a little worried when the social worker called and said she was going to be late, but fortunately, it all worked out for the best! We had a great afternoon of discussing our lives with her, and she gave us great tips and things to consider for the next phase of the process. We both felt it went really well.
So, what's the next phase of the process? Well, most adoptive parents will say this is the hardest part. We are now officially waiting. Waiting to be chosen. Wait Wait Wait. We have turned in all our paperwork and our birth mother book and are ready to go. So, to keep us busy while we wait, we are going to transform our guest room into a nursery! Sorry, all visitors will have to sleep on the sofa bed from now on! We have to first get all the stuff out of the room that doesn't need to be there, and do some painting to get everything ready, then we will get the furniture.
Have a GREAT week!
