First Homestudy visit

Today was our first homestudy visit in Atlanta. We left our house at 6:30 am to be there by 11. The kids did a very good job riding and then behaved very well while we talked with the social worker for an hour. Really to me the meeting was pointless. It was an introductory meeting and they wanted to know why we wanted to adopt. That was it. We were also given a packet of papers to fill out that are very much like Dillon's app.2. Anyway, I feel as though I am drowning in a sea of paperwork. (And this too shall pass.)
We then left Atlanta and drove four hours to Jim's parents. Again the kids did wonderful (slept most of the way). Thank you Lord for a safe trip and a quiet trip. We will go back two more times next week and then the social worker will come to our house. Please pray everything goes quickly and smoothly.

I'm so sorry you have to do more paperwork. It'll be worth it in the end when you are holding your sweet boy. He's a cutie!

I can testify to the paperwork. My friend and social worker often told me that I was "paper pregnant." I remember the hard part about all of that paperwork is that I'd hurry up and fill it all out (sometimes staying up in the wee hours of the morning), only to send it off and wait some more. At least when I had paperwork to do, I felt in control. It was harder for me just waiting to hear something back. Praying you'll get that little boy soon.
