May already?

Monday, May 02, 2011
Fingers and toes crossed, but this month we should be finished with our homestudy. There are a few little things left to do, but we are almost there! We have one more meeting with our social worker to discuss the paperwork we filled out discussing what we would or would not consider in a match, and then our home visit is scheduled for the end of the month.

Needless to say we are both getting a little antsy and are so ready for this to be finished. It's been a lot of work, extremely emotional, and yet rather rewarding too. Once we are officially homestudy approved, we are going to start inching away at the nursery. Just a little bit at a time. Others have commented we should go ahead and start now, but I see that approval as my "positive" pregnancy test. Until then, it's a no go.

Also, for all of you out there getting ready for your first Mother's Day without your baby(ies), I wish for strength and peace this week. And for those of us facing another one without our baby(ies), I wish for strength and peace as well.

Love and prayers to all.


  1. I hope your homestudy goes well! And that you find the same peace this coming week that you sent out to all of us. I really appreciated that. I'm finding the anticipation of Mother's Day really hard this year.

  2. I'm sure your homestudy will go extremely well!! Thanks for the Mother's Day well-wishes. I already had a slight break down yesterday in anticipation about next week. I'm dreading going to church and facing the celebration yet another year childless... I'm trying to put a positive spin on it...Trying!!!

    Good luck with everything!
