Waiting, waiting, and more waiting

We are still in a waiting pattern. Hopefully we can hear back sometime soon. Our case was only put under review just over a week ago, we are waiting for the case workers to look over our case.

While we are waiting for approval we are taking a trip to California to visit family, sunshine and the beach. It is snowing and cold where we are so it is going to be a great chance to be warm and sunny for a while.

We will update as soon as we know anything that is new or anything that has changed. Please keep us in your prayers that this may go quickly and that we will be able to find our birth parents. We are looking forward to all the challenges coming up.

Home visit

I was super nervous about the home visit. Not because of the case worker, or that the house wasn't clean enough or that the banister that we just put into the house was only partially finished{ok maybe this was a little bit of the nerves} I think it had far more to do with the fact that this was our last major step of this process. That we could actually be "approved" by the end of the week.
Approved, someone else, a strictly speaking non-interested third party, is saying that they think we will be good parents, our house is safe enough and that a birth parent could select us to be the parents of their baby.
I had so much nervous energy the hour before the case worker came that I was scrubbing the inside of the microwave, the roof of it and in the corners. Brian came in and reminded me that the case worker was not going to be looking in there, he even bet me $5 that she wouldn't be looking. And she didn't. I can laugh at it now, but at the time it was mission critical, it had to be done right then.
We feel so blessed to have so many behind us and being supportive and want to thank them! You know who you are. We could not do this without your help.
