About Us

We are currently a waiting family on our journey to becoming parents. This blog was started in hopes of keeping all our friends and family up to date on all things adoption. It has become that as well as a place for me to share our feelings and/or frustrations and a way for us to let off some steam every once in a while! Thank you all for your love and support!

Home Study

It has actually been a year since our homestudy became active and that means that it is time for an update.  We had to get physicals, fingerprints, reference letters and a home visit from our caseworker.  Our caseworker came to our house on Friday.  Our visit went very well!  We updated some information, like my new job and our nephew Parker joining our family!  We talked for awhile about our profile and how we have done a little networking with our business cards.  She loved our card and asked if we might talk about it at the next waiting families meeting! 
She was also a very big hit with our dog, Mischa!  For those of you who don't know our dog, she is a very big chicken.  She scares easy and is pretty much afraid of everyone and everything! lol  Well, not on Friday!  She LOVED our caseworker!!!  She would not leave her alone.  All she wanted was for her to pet her and scratch her back!  She was in love!  After she left, we told Mischa how proud we were and gave her all her favorite treats!  We have never seen her act like that when people are in our house!  It was amazing!
Before our caseworker left we talked about our profile and how long we have been waiting so far.  She said she does not understand it.  We have a great profile!  She seems very happy with our profile and doesn't want us to change anything.  She said that we are being shown above average and that we are getting a lot of attention that way.  It just hasn't been the right one yet.  We are feeling good about our caseworker and we trust what she is saying about our profile.  We had a great visit and are very excited about what is to come.  I am not saying that I won't have more tough days or that we don't need your support because we are getting close!  Thank you for all of your support!
