Updating Our Homestudy

The news on the adoption front is that we are still waiting. I am hopeful as our agency has told us to get everything in our home study updated. This is good and bad news. Good news in that perhaps we are getting closer to a referral (child assignment). Bad news in that updating everything is a tremendous amount of work. So, basically I am working overtime to get the required doctor visit documents, finger prints, child abuse background checks, police clearances done and much, much more. What a drag!
It is estimated that we will receive our referral within 6 months. It better. I never dreamed we would be over 2 years when we started this process. Adoption is not for wimps!

Krista, I couldn't agree with you more~as we are re-doing our homestudy, from scratch - Yes it is true, Adoption is NOT for whimps. You need a tremendous amount of patience, a good notary, and a very reliable copy machine.
Nice to meet another waiting family!

Good thing you're not a wimp- you can do this! You CAN do this! And she will be perfect, and she will be worth it!

Thinking about you often as I know you're getting closer,
