Sorry I have been MIA for a while.
We were busy packing and doing renos for a while. It was stressful (PMS didn't help).
Then we moved on February 2. That went well.
Renos are continuing while we unpack and settle in.
Today we finally got our phone connected! This means we also have dial-up Internet until we get something better, hopefully soon. But I am still very thankful to have some Internet! I was using Internet on/through Hubby's cell phone on occasion, but that was only when he was home.
AND...we have a date for the first meeting of our homestudy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! March 5.
Before then we have to get our photos together (two double-sided 8 1/2 x 11 papers with captions) and do the part of our Application II in which we state how much cigarettes, drugs, alcohol, etc we are okay with birthmom having used during what parts of her pregnancy. Otherwise we are mainly finished everything!
The first meeting will be at the agency. We'll hand in everything we've been working on.
I believe the next two meetings will be with a social worker (where they ask you everything including "the colour of our underwear" to quote my brother, who has also adopted, lol).
The last meeting will be back at the agency again, and then we will be approved!!
