Homestudy Update

We heard from the social worker!!  We know now when the dates of our homestudy are!  The first meeting will be at our house on April 20, Saturday, at 1pm.  The second one will be at AO on April 22, Monday, at 5pm.  The dates & times work out perfectly for us!  She said the interviews will be 2-3 hours long.  I am terribly excited!  I can't believe all the months - years, actually - of preparing are finally going to be coming to a head.  We're soon going to be waiting parents.  I'm a little disappointed we have to wait a month before starting the homestudy, but that gives us some time to work more on renos, unpacking, etc.  I know making the house nice isn't where my focus needs to be for the homestudy, but it does need to look a little better than this (boxes piled around, no doors installed, etc).  She said that after the last meeting she tries to have the homestudy written up in a week.  After that (not sure what date) we meet with AO's program supervisor again, at which time we will be APPROVED!  I'm still hoping that will be by Mother's Day ;)
