Truckin' Along



Home study.... check! Thank you all for praying... the home study isn't actually complete... we're still finishing up our online adoption training, having health forms filled out and notarized, and tying up a few more loose ends. But our {three-hour} home visit was completed yesterday, and it went well.



I have to share with you the funniest thing that happened during the home study... I wasn't really nervous - but I felt like our family was under the microscope, and I never like being the center of attention, so I was a little anxious about that. Well, within the first 5 minutes of the social worker walking through our door, Maggie - our ever extraverted child - asked her if she'd like to see the "dangerous" part of the house....

Really? You're gonna ask the home study social worker if she wants to see the dangerous part of our house? Alright then...

So she took her to the small access door in the hallway, which leads to the area between the walls, providing access to plumbing. "This is the dangerous part," she said, and went on to explain.... "See, if Carson ever got in here it would be bad because there's like a hundred roaches!"

Yep. She said that.

All I could do was laugh {and thankfully, so did our social worker}. It was only fitting that the visit should start out that way; it really does fit our family. Always something... never a dull moment....




Now I've got to dive back into the sea of paperwork.... and keep truckin' along... but I'll be back soon!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Thank you so much for updating about the homestudy! It is so easy to just not blog while you are in the "buried under paperwork" phase, but us folks who are half a world away really appreciate you doing so! This is a huge milestone and I am so happy that it passed quickly for you! Jenna is a great social worker and I have no doubt whatsoever that she saw you for exactly what you are, a totally awesome family. :) We love you guys and couldn't be happier for you!!
