Loose ends

We found a family law lawyer, and have an appointment on Tuesday. We want to meet with him now, so we can make sure we are doing everything right and things will go along smoothly when we get the call. It's important for them to be familiar with ICPC (Interstate Child Placement Compact) processes so that we can minimize the amount of time we will spend out of state if need be (different states require different things).

I found out that our home study case worker has not sent in the paperwork yet. So, I sent her an email today, and will call her tomorrow. There is no real reason for the hold up, so we don't understand why it's taking so long. I guess they just got swamped. She told us it would be a month or so, and it's been almost 2 months :( We have some time to get it done, but want to have it finished so we don't have to worry about it.

Our adoption coordinator said we are set (short of getting the home study turned in), and that all we have to do now is check in with her once a month to make sure things are going smoothly. She (and the office) spend time building relationships with birthmoms to determine who they will match up with adoptive parents.

Well, that's about all going on right now....
