Good news – our home study update is finally done! We received our new home study in the mail from our social worker on Wednesday. It took a bit longer than we expected. Since our place on our agency’s waiting list was not contingent on completing this home study update, I was not as stressed about getting it done.
So what’s next? We’ll spend the next couple of weeks updating our dossier paperwork so when we do receive a referral our paperwork will not be too old. It’s been almost 17 months since we went on our agency’s waiting list. We haven’t received any updates from our agency recently – if you recall, the update in December said we may have another 12 months until we are matched with a child. I am hoping it won’t be that long, though. Stay tuned. . .
