All that stress for nothing. Yesterday (Friday) morning the social worker called to say she had to postpone. She has a regular, full-time job, and our agency contracts out to the social worker, so she just does this in her spare time. Apparently her regular job rarely asks her to work weekends, but this weekend they did. So the homestudy is not happening today like originally planned. We are still going to be having the one at the agency on Monday like planned, and then we will reschedule the one for at our home. As of now I have no idea when that will be. Of course I was disappointed and frustrated. The house was almost perfectly clean and I know it won't stay that way. And I had this (silly, I know) dream of being approved and waiting by Mother's Day, which probably won't happen now. But we have a little more time to work on the house now (we're still renovating and unpacking) so that's nice, I guess. And now we can get to know her before she comes into our home. Trying to find the positives here!
