We will be home study approved in a couple of weeks.
The home visit was this morning, and it went well. It was a lot easier than I expected it to be. The only major concern she seemed to have was our budget. 25k is low in the grand scheme of things, since most adoptions average between 25k and 30k. It doesn't mean it can't happen. It just means we might be waiting a little longer, and that we need to be resourceful and protect ourselves with where we go and how our money is spent.
We have a lot to do from this point. We have a list of agencies, attorneys, and consultants to call and ask about pricing, procedures, etc. We need to decide who we are going to use. We have to start our profile. I'm a little overwhelmed, but mostly excited. This is what we've been working for, and it's finally here. I feel like I'm a race horse who has just been put into the starting gate and is waiting for the gunshot. There are so many unknowns. The best I can do is that hope everything falls into place.
