We had our 2nd Home Study visit with the Social Worker last week. It was the one where we were interviewed individually about our autobiographies. It was a very LONG afternoon but it was successful. Our precious social worker makes us feel very comfortable and she is so easy to talk to. At that visit, we realized that we had a few more CAN (Child Abuse and Neglect Clearance) forms to complete. We made a list of 6 more things to complete! Only 6 more things!!! June and July have been chock full of paperwork and Adoption errands but we are finally getting close to finishing the Home Study paperwork!!! Yipeee! We pushed hard to finish all the paperwork before Cary starts back to school in August! We just might make it!!! Of course there is always the dreaded……Oh, we forgot you need to…….
One of the things on our checklist was to get the boys – our precious cats – to the vet for the update of their rabies shot.
The boys did great! We are very proud of them! They didn’t bite or fight at all. That also tells us that they will be great with the kids when they come home! We are very thankful for our wonderful vet, Dr. Ray Arnold! He is so gentle and kind! We met Dr. Ray and his wife at church – they are wonderful people and we are so blessed to know them!
We thank God for the progress that we are making on the Home Study and in raising the funds to bring our kids home! Our next home visit is scheduled next week. We are so happy to have finished our online Hague training, book reading, and online International Adoption training which completes our educational piece for the Home Study. We will discuss all that with our Social Worker at the next and last Home Visit. Just in time for the school year to start! God is good!
