Third Meeting with our Social Worker.

We made it through another visit with our Social worker. We found that we will be having our final visit next month!!!!! I can't wait for this to be over and we can keep moving forward. We did happen to get some information from her to where we stand with her. She mentioned that she doesn't see any red flags on our request to adopt so that was very comforting to hear. It's just hard to have someone else be the one in control of the decision if you have children or not. Since couples who have natural children aren't interviewed to say if they could keep them or not. Either way we are glad that this part of the journey is almost over and we can keep moving forward with our adoption. We just want to have our children in our arms already.

Second Meeting with Social Worker.

Our second session seemed to go over well. We had to talked about our childhood, education and jobs. I found it hard to remember dates, but figured I got them close enough. She mostly got information on Tj's life as his family is much larger then mine. She said that she would go over mine on our next meeting as it took so long to get through his. I found that this session I felt more comfortable with our social worker. It's hard telling a stranger all about your life, but she's a very nice lady. Our next session is April 15.
