And Now We Wait

15 Nov

It’s over – the last of our home study visits was a few hours ago.  Here we are with V, our social worker. She’s so nice.

In the next few weeks, V will write up our report and file it with the state. We can’t finalize an adoption until the paperwork has been filed, but we’re allowed to begin our search now.

So the long search and the wait begins.

    Well, I will anxiously follow your journey and hope for the best and a quick referral. Please feel free to pick my brain and heart any time you want to. I assume from your post that you are seeking a newborn. Is that correct? Can’t wait for the next steps.

        It’s also a sign that you have made this big step in the process during National Adoption Month.
