Finalized Homestudy Drawing Near

Good morning all!
We just got off the phone with our social worker
so I'm here with an update.
It appears that there are only a few items
still missing before our homestudy is finalized. :)

When I got the email from Jennifer this morning
saying we needed to talk, my heart dropped.
I arranged an immediate call time
with a lump in my throat.
When she called she explained it was to get
a better understanding of Andy's current job situation.
Yeah, in all honesty we're living it 
and it still confuses us.
After a review of numbers
which by the way was almost as fun 
as revealing my undies size,
we moved on to the other necessary items.
Along with Andy's new job documents
there are still a couple of reference letters are missing.
The good news?
She hopes to knock this out in the next couple of days!

Probably the best part of the conversation
was that she shared her personal story.
You see Jennifer and her husband adopted
a beautiful baby boy from Korea during the spring.
As we talked I explained and apologized for the
snail's pace at which things had been moving.
That when she told me that her
homestudy was the same way.
She said that after signing with their agency
they had to sit back for an entire summer
before picking up speed again.
She said the best part was that once they
started moving again they were matched in October.
That's the kinda pace I'm talking about!
So, I'll keep you posted as the week goes on.
Keep praying for Emily Margaret!
God's blessings,
Sarah :)

You're nearly there! The homestudy is so important and such an emotionally trying process. Most people WANT to rush thought it but once you have to sit down and recount your pantie size for the last ten years, i can see how taking a slower approach can help your sanity.
I'm so glad you guys have been able to push on through.=) It will all all ALL be worth it.<3
