We had our home study visit! It went great. Why was I even nervous? The social worker was wonderful and patient with our active boy. We first gave a tour of our home then we sat for an interview. Who would ever think that we could be stumped when she asked what our joys of parenting are. I think it is hard to put such a huge thing into words. It is All a joy. (Don't worry, we gave a better answer than that!) We have some work to do while our social worker puts together our home study packet. I hope to have our home study done by the end of December! This feels a little like my first trimester. I'm counting the weeks until the second trimester starts. Dossier, here we come! The picture is one that we plan on sending to Ethiopia with our Dossier.
