some occasions just call for center align

Yesterday I got an email and the subject line was: “Your Home Study Process is Complete”.

And, then I exhaled.

It was the best email I’ve gotten in quite a while.

We weren’t exactly hard-core in terms of getting everything done quickly, but after 11 weeks of paperwork, fingerprints, references, background checks, writing checks, home visits, doctor’s appointments, etc. it’s nice to just have it all done.

Last night, just before midnight, I sent our profile (completed thanks to shutterfly) to our social worker to review before we order copies.

It was torture to make it.

What do you say to the woman who you hope will choose you to parent her precious baby?


With any luck, we’ll be active in the domestic program with our agency in a couple of weeks.
