We just finished our visit with the social worker for our home study update. This meeting was with a new social worker, so we were a little apprehensive about how everything would go. It went really well – I think we probably asked her more questions than she asked us. My husband said today that our adoption has actually been good for our health and our finances – because our home study requires medical checkups and a review of our financial picture. I’ll admit, though, it was a little depressing looking at our finances this time around, since we have lost money in our 401K and stock accounts. But at least now we know how much money we don’t have.
