We have been a little busy lately! Softball takes up a lot of our time and all the paperwork takes up the rest. We received our paperwork for the Home study..lots of it! We have a long list to complete for the adoption agency and another long list for the social worker. It gets a little confusing! I am trying to be organized though. I already completed my physical and typed up most of the letters that I needed to type. Anthony goes for his physical in a couple weeks. I also have to take all 3 of the kids next week for their TB skin tests..I'm sure they will love that! They have to make sure we are all healthy. Letters of employment, birth certificates, family photos, passports, etc..etc..and everything has to be notarized. I thankful to my "references" for helping out! We really appreciate it! Also our friends and family that are being so supportive. We mailed our next large payment today to pay for our Home study and our post placement fees. Once they receive our payment and another signed agreement, our social worker will call us to set up our first of 4 home visits. I am now working on my autobiography that they asked us to complete. Anthony has been working on all the things I assigned him. Slowly but surely we are checking items off our list. Next week will be to get our fingerprints and our police clearances. As I said..Its A lot! I am anxious to meet with the social worker and get things underway. This is a test of our patience but this is only the beginning. For now..one piece of paper at a time!
