Two China Dolls and a Prince!

This blog chronicles the story of 2 of our adoptions, both older children when they came home. It begins in 2008 and will continue in the hopes we can be of encouragement and information to anyone thinking of older child adoption.

Homestudy visit!

Today was our home visit for the homestudy. This was a good excuse for me to purge the house of "excess". We got rid of a large truckload...going to have a garage sale to raise funds. Home visit went great, social worker said she would approve us for healthy or special needs, 15 and under, boy. That should cover it! Very happy to have that first one out of the way, next week we should have the visits done, so I'm hoping to get the dossier ready to certify and authenticate by the time the homestudy is done.

On another subject, I chose to run for our school board back in January. When the adoption came up, I thought about withdrawing but I like to start what I finish. Tonight, we had a town forum where we introduced ourselves and answered questions. I was so nervous I thought I was going to hurl! But it went well and I got a lot of good feedback, so we'll see what happens next Tuesday! There are six candidates for 2 positions, unheard of in our little town!
