Paperwork, more paperwork and fingerprinting

The home study and adoption paperwork is in full swing. I surely had to learn how I needed to organize all the paperwork very quickly. You have adoption agency paperwork, home study paperwork for your agency, home study paperwork for you and your social worker, other social worker paperwork copies and then a dossier list. Multiple copies for each, some in color, some notarized, some originals- you get the point. Lots and lots of paperwork to bring our sweet little boy home. I do have to say that, so far, the paperwork has helped to somewhat calm me. Yes it adds stress too, but the fact that I am doing something to move the process forward gives me some hope. This week we have worked on background checks and fingerprinting. Next week its doctor appointments, a fire inspection (hopefully) and our first social worker visit April 8th.

Things are slowly but surely moving forward

To our second born son

I lay here tonight, wondering where you are and how you are doing. Have you even been born yet? Are you well? Is someone around you showing you love? You are not alone, you are completely and utterly loved! We cannot wait to bring you home and into our family. Your brother cannot wait to meet you. We pray for you daily and are working hard to get you home. Before we have even met you, we love and miss you terribly. In a few weeks (April 8, 2013) we will meet our social worker and things will get moving along.

See you soon my son!

Let the home study begin!

It's here, it's here! Our home study packet arrived Saturday and we have been going through all the paperwork. When I look at it all I'm comforted knowing that others have gone before us and completed this all before. Because my oh my there is a lot to keep track of. So here we go!

I made myself a keychain yesterday. It is shown here on a necklace, but I have one I wear all the time already. I changed it up and carry this with me now. I wasn't able to show the whole thing on Facebook or in my shop so I couldn't wait to show it here. 

Ours certainly hasn't

We are patiently (or impatiently) awaiting our home study packet so we can get started. Waiting is tough and we have just begun. I hope for that envelope of information every day.
