I got an email today from our adoption agency! We have been assigned our social worker. It turns out the gal we have been working with to get all our paperwork done is also doing her internship for her Masters in Social Work and she has been assigned to us. I am pretty excited by this since we already know her and have a rapport with her. Plus, she is really nice :)
We will have 2 visits with her, one in her office and one in our home. The first visit should be next week at 9 AM. She said it will last 2-3 hours. I think we will each be interviewed separately and then jointly.
This process has definitely taken longer than I thought it would. All this waiting with no moving forward has been really difficult. But I know it has been for the best because it has enabled me to experience a time of healing and preparation.
My excitement has definitely returned!
Please pray for us regarding next week's interview. Please pray for us to have the right words and for us not to be too nervous.
I was thinking tonight about how blessed I am to be a part of this blogging community. I don't know what I would do without all of you!
