Our social worker visited us tonight to update our home study. It went fine, although there is always a touch of nervousness when you realize that one person has the power to approve you as potential parents. However, the more visits you go through, the more at ease you become. It's like visiting an old friend. You talk about adoption and your life and then they update your information. (You also clean your house like crazy!) Everything else is pretty much done - the backbround checks, physicals, etc. We will need to retake the CPR class in a couple of months.
So, in the eyes of the state, we are approved to adopt for another year. We pray that our blessing will arrive this year.
