The adoption process is going along a little faster than we had expected! I honestly didn’t know how long it would take for the home study to be complete, but in my mind since I tend to think the worst, I imagined it would take 4-6 months! We had our first interview[out of 3] with our worker last Monday. It went really well! We have our second interview scheduled for the May 10th, and then the final visit at our home on May 20th! We are very excited….
One thing Kaz and I have talked about is the next step. After everything is approved and we are just waiting we have wondered what we will think and feel. It’s honestly scary for me to think about…knowing that any day we could get a phone call saying there is a child for us. Will it take a long time? Will it be a very short wait? I have no idea what to think…In my mind, I would like to think things will go quickly and by a certain date we would have a child. BUT what if that doesn’t happen? What will my faith be like? I’m not the most patient person….Will I lose Hope?
There are so many questions that run through my mind regarding the “waiting period”.
If you have adopted, I would love to hear more about this stage from you and how you handled it…..
