Homestudy Done

20 Dec

We are taking foward steps in our adoption from Ethiopia process.

Andrew and I just finished our homestudy interviews and are ready to start out immigration (called a dossier) paperwork.

Homestudy means the social worker that was assigned to our case came to our home to check it out and interview us. We did one interview at the house together and then we did another day of interviews where he sat down with me and Andrew individually.

The homestudy was a lot less invasive than I thought it would be. I was prepared for our social worker to look at our medicine cabinet, ask where we store our knives, look in our fridge, etc. But he really just looked to see that we had 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms like we said we did. 

Thanks for continuing to pray us through this process. Andrew and I are getting more and more excited. It still may take a while. Probably about another year and a half to two years before we get to bring kid(s) home. We are praying for God to work a miracle of ‘quickness.’
