Homestudy #2

Today we had our second homestudy.   It lasted about two hours and was an interview of Drew and I...we basically had to tell about our family growing up and how our childhood was.  I was surprised about how much they wanted to know about our extended families.  We also had to give our social worker a tour around the house.  We have one more homestudy until they start to process our family.  I'm guessing it will be about three more weeks until we have a completed homestudy.  From there we will process our dossier and THAT'S when this gets really exciting!  That is also where I think the hard work comes in.
This is Drew telling about his childhood and his family.  :)  Our social worker asked a lot about how our family would receive this new child...would they accept him/her.  Our prayer is-YES...but only time will tell.  I hope everyone can see how precious this child is!


  1. Praying for you guys! The dossier is a snap, compared to the waiting! :) I didn't mind doing the dossier, since it was basically a checklist that I was pretty much in charge of. When you are waiting for the I171H (or whatever form they have now) and for NC to validate some info, that was hardest for me! God really grew me in my trust in Him and waiting on His time. It was all for His glory though!!!

  2. Thank you Jacque! We need all the encouragement we can get and we love hearing about past adoptions!
