Home Study- Inspection

Filed under: Adoption 101 — aunthoddy @ 8:26 PM

Tuesday was our house inspection for our home study.  We didn’t know what to expect, even after researching all that we could.  Apparently each social worker does things a bit differently.

We’ve been preparing for weeks.  We’ve cleaned, painted, cleaned, set up a nursery, cleaned, installed fire alarms, cleaned, baby-proofed the house, cleaned…  You get the picture!  This session also included our 2nd interview with Miss Karen, our social worker.

Daniel was really nervous, but I wasn’t.  I attribute that to your prayers; thank you!!!  Our visit went well.  Miss Karen was very complimentary, and seemed pleased with what she saw.  We’re very thankful to have another step completed!

We have three more interviews to complete our home study.  Daniel & I have been working hard on lots of paperwork.  I also got fingerprinted (again!), set up an appointment for a physical, and scheduled our next interviews & a training class.  Phew!  I’m glad it’s Spring Break so I can get some of this out of the way!
