That was the theme of our weekend!! …BECAUSE we got a phone call Friday from our Adoption Agency and they asked us when we could get the rest of our paperwork and home study done! She said reason why she is asking is because there is already a birth mom interested in us!!!!!!! WHAT?!? Roger and I couldn’t believe it! We hadn’t even finished submitting our paperwork and there is already a birth mom wanting to see our profile!??!! We are just so excited!!!
We are trying not to get our hopes up, after all, she might not even like us, but we are just so excited about what God has in store for us, whether she is the one carrying our baby or not. Either way, this is exciting!! So when our adoption agency told us this, we told her we will have all of our paperwork in on Monday! After an exhausting weekend of paperwork and paperwork and more paperwork, 74 pages later, we faxed in all of our paperwork to both our adoption agency and home study agency! Phew!! What a sigh of relief once that was all in and faxed! So now they can share our information with the birth mom! Although our profile book (which is like a 10 page photo album with information about our family in it) isn’t ready yet, but it was shipped today-yay!! But that is where the birth mom will really get a good feel for who we are as a family and start from there, so as soon as we can get that into them then things will really get rolling! That and the home study has to be approved, which we have our home study visit this Saturday!!!! BIG deal!!!! We are nervous but excited!! I’ll let you know how it goes! :/ Hopefully not too bad. With all the paperwork we filled out, and all the crazy details we filled out on those forms, I don’t know what else they could possibly ask us, but I guess there will be more! All I’ve heard is that a home study is invasive, they interview us together, us separately, and even Aiden. Once we get approved for the home study, the final hurdle we have to jump through is coming up with the money, but we’re just taking it one step at a time. Right now, it’s getting through the Home Study! Wish us luck!! 🙂
