First Home Study Meeting...Check!

We met with our social worker, Kim, last night for our first home study meeting & I think it went pretty well! I asked John to casually tap my knee to signal if I was talking too much (a problem if I'm nervous!) & I guess I did OK because I never got "the tap". Kim seemed very relaxed and laid back & when I saw that there were dog dishes in her bathroom (we met at her house) I thought that we must have found the exact right social worker for us! Thank You God! Our next meeting is July 30.

We also found out we can mail in our first Immigration petition so we are preparing that paper work to get in the mail asap. Things seem to be going pretty smoothly & we are soooooooooooo thankful!

Thanks for your encouragement everybody! I love it! It IS stressful, but when we're right in the middle of it I feel a surprising amount of peace. John & I are just so thankful to be this far along in the process & are getting more excited about someday actually meeting our new little one(s).
