Foster Care Adoption: Little Steps, Big Excitement

Today, it has been 84 days since we turned in the giant manila envelope with our application inside.

Also today, we learned that after 84 days, the right email makes us do this:


We have been assigned a social worker by our agency, and we will be starting the home study process very, very soon! There will be so many things to do and learn in this process as we get ready for our future child to arrive.

We know this is a small step, but it’s a step nonetheless, and we are unashamed of our over-the-top joy about forward movement and having things to work on and look forward to. WE’RE SO EXCITED AND WE JUST CAN’T HIDE IT.
