Someone Call A Fireman
This week has flown by. Not much to report on the home study front, other than receiving a two page list of things we need to make sure our house has in place by the time our social worker arrives. Some of the things are: fire extinguisher, working fire alarms, a room for the baby, etc…BUT, my favorite thing on the list is that we are supposed to have a family fire drill every six months and a posted evacuation plan. Now I’m not going to say if we do or do not already do this, but I’m certain that our new neighbors are going to be giving us some strange looks on “drill day.”
We have also been working with our adoption consultant on creating our family profile book. This is the book that is presented to birth moms about our family. They look at our life as a family and decide if they want to be “matched” with us. I have been busy collecting about 100 pictures of our family consisting of various events and also writing about our family. Everything I write just doesn’t seem good enough. How do you put into words how much you love your family or how much we would love this woman’s baby? I want the words to be perfect, but I also just want to skip all the writing and put “We promise we will love your baby and give them an amazing life….We promise we will love your baby and give them an amazing life” over and over again! Either way, the book is coming together.
Other than that, the only other update is our Puzzle!
At the end of Week 4, our total is:
