Second Home Study Appointment
We had our second home study appointment last night.This one was in our home. We spent the last week preparing for the visit. Looking back it was funny how nervous we were. We had no reason to be. Trina is great. We talked about our reason for adopting, feelings toward the birth parents, and a lot about our relationship and parenting techniques. Casale was quite the charmer. He layed right next to her the entire time and rolled around on his back demanding attention. When that wasn't enough.....he farted. I totally started laughing. I had to explain to her how rude English Bulldogs can sometimes be LOL!! After our discussion we took her on a tour of the house. That was it. Easy peasy.
We have one more home study appointment. We each have to meet with her in a few weeks to discuss our family history. After that she will write our home study and submitt it to our family coordinator and the State of Arizona for approval. Her target date is the end of the year. If all goes well we will be DTE (Dossier to Ethiopia) some time in late January or early February. We are so excited. DTE means that we are officially on the list to be matched with our child/children!!!!
Thank you all for your prayers and support. It means a lot to us.
