Home Study Update.

We had our home study update today and are feeling really good about it. The social worker we hired came to our house and spent about an hour here. It was really laid back and not stressful at all. I am just glad it is over. We've been back and forth so much on how we going to do things this time I am just glad that a real start has been made!

We still have a lot of saving and fund raising to do. But we know that we will be led in the right direction and that we have a great support system of family and friends.

I still have to finish our profile book since the one we used last time obviously needs a lot of updating since KJ is here now. I am not nearly as nutty about rushing to get everything done like I was the first time! It is a nice feeling to just be a lot more laid back about it this time. I know that when our child is ready to be brought to us that God will make that happen. All my rushing and crazy behavior won't change that.

We will be registering with this program through Sp.enc.e-Ch.apin Adoption Services. Since we are already open to so many of the things on their list, we knew it was a good match for us. We are still going to be working with our attorney as a "back up" couple as well.

Keep us in your thoughts and prayers! More updates to come as they happen.

I'm glad the appointment went well. I know what you mean about rushing to everything done. I wish I had your laid back attitude and I have to keep reminding myself that this will all happen in God's timing, and not my own.

Glad it's easier this time around. I have been hoping when we start for #2 I won't be quite the mess I was the first time around.
Have fun updating your profile.
