Home Study Scheduled!!!!

Our Social Worker called! FINALLY!!!!!! All of our paperwork was finally in place and we scheduled the home study! We are doing things slightly backward due to moving our residence. Instead of our social worker coming to us on visit 1, we are going to her. It's about an hour and a half drive and we are going June 10th in the am! 

Next, she will come to us on June 16th. Um, this is exactly 1 day after we close and move into our new home. YIKES! She knows we are moving and is incredibly understanding. She said she didn't care if there were boxes all over the place. She needs to check the place out and make sure we have room and its a sturdy joint. It better be! :) While she may be understanding and laid back about us moving, I can't say that I am! My mind is racing about how I can physically unpack and decorate the whole house in 24 hours. I've seen it done on TV, so it can't be that hard, right?! Okay okay, I am just going to try to remain calm and relaxed, even though I am currently a neurotic mess!!!!!!!!

Those prayers are definitely being answered and we thank you! Once this step is complete, we are one step closer to our baby! Whoop! We are nearly done with all of the paperwork needing completion for the dossier (which is paperwork that goes to Africa, and puts us on the official wait list). Even the stuff which had to be "re-done" due to our change of address. This should all be complete next week because SCHOOL'S OUT as of TOMORROW at 11am!!!!!!!!!!! I can't wait to focus energy on other things in my life for a few weeks! Yippee!

I will keep you posted on the home study process and there will most likely be some rambled posts about the move... Enjoy your week! I know I am!

Wow! I think I am finally figuring out how to reply to your Blog. Just a little slow in the tech dept. but I always persevere! So Dad, Kara, & I would like a t-shirt. Can we wear them on the 4th of July too? I am busting at the seams to tell the WORLD I am going to be a Nana again! Your Dad is also very excited. He said "Of course we are going to help them move. Lindsey is pregnant!"
