Never Mind

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!


  1. Sorry it was postponed. It's hard for me when things are out if my control and are based on others schedules. It must have been so disappointing. It WILL happen! :). I was just reading a post from Nov 2011 about being disappointed we had not matched yet and baby girl was born jan 25th. It WILL happen! I swear!

  2. I'm glad that you'll still have an opportunity to meet on neutral ground on Monday - the first time we met our social worker I was a bundle of nerves! The second time was much, much easier.

    Hange in there - you're getting closer. The process is excruciating though, isn't it? So much is out of our control.... the only advice I can offer is that the timing is meant to be - fate will bring you the perfect baby for your family at the perfect time, and believe me, it will all make sense then. :)

  3. So sorry to hear about the delay for your homestudy. I hope the rest of your adoption journey is smooth and uncomplicated.

  4. I'm sorry your home visit was postponed. It is so hard to change plans once you have started to get emotionally (and physically) prepared for something like that.

    Good luck in your appointment today.

  5. Hi from ICLW...sorry that the visit got postponed but good luck at the agency
