First of all, my goal of getting the house cleaned and the tree decorated yesterday was met! I will post a picture of the finished product later, maybe tomorrow. And now to the main event.
Promptly at 9:00 this morning the social worker from the adoption agency came by. I must say that she very graciously tolerated Molly's excitement about having a visitor. She gave us a wonderful overview as to the home study process and their domestic adoption process and answered all of our questions without us even having to ask them. We were very comfortable with her right away and we feel that this agency will be a good fit with us. They are not a large agency, but I think we will really benefit from the personal service and hand holding.
Our next step is to arrange our first visit for the home study. They will call me back this afternoon with the details. It looks like our biggest problem with the home study may be locating our tax returns from last year. We used Turbo Tax and never printed it out due to printing problems and then just plain forgetting about it. The trouble is that Brian reformatted the computer about 2 months ago so it isn't on the hard drive anymore. Hopefully he can find it wherever he backed things up to. Arghhhh!
So there isn't anything too exciting to report, other than the fact that we are at least getting started. And that is something.
In other news, tomorrow, the 6th, should have been our due date. It's really sad to think about that. And I may spend some time under my rock tomorrow. But for now, I'm off to go get a massage and then later, to the hockey game tonight.
