We are getting paperwork together to renew our home study, which needs to be completed yearly in order to adopt. For those that don’t know what a home study is: a licensed social worker evaluates your home to determine that it’s safe for a child to live in. We have a wonderful social worker that was referred to us by our adoption lawyer! We provide financial and health information, answer questions about personal strengths/weaknesses as well as within our marriage and talk about family support to ensure that any child that lives with us will be fully supported. We get finger prints and background checks completed as well, which was just done yesterday. It takes time to complete this process but it’s really important.. not only for legal reasons, but so that any expectant parent knows that their child is in good hands should they choose us- because nothing is more important.
