Waiting to Wait




Technically speaking, our social worker has until November 30th (which is tomorrow!) to complete our home study. I never imagined it would take a month. But it has. And until now I would consider myself patient. Very patient. But now I am ready to scream. I am so ready for the next step. I saw a rough draft of the home study and some minor changes are being made so I am really counting on seeing it completed tomorrow. When this happens we will be on the official list! There is no one ahead of us in our program because we are hoping to adopt a toddler around the age of two. Most people are in other programs adopting infants and that's where the waiting lists are. So once we have our home study turned in, we could receive the referral of our daughter any day after that. Most likely the wait could be around three months but I am remaining optimistic.

On the home front, Ila went to dance class today. Complete with leg warmers. I was really expecting potty training to keep me busy for the next month or so. But she has graduated. I'll have to come up with something else. In the mean time, I will just continue to spend money and gain weight. Scott is going to kill me. But what else is a girl to do?

Ila the ballerina is too cute. Nov. 30th is a lucky day - Mags birthday, so hopefully tomorrow you will be official. My heart goes out to you, I know that frustration so well, but before you know it, youre going to be too busy to blog. Love to Scott and baby Ila. Joan
