Ahhh, I am breathing so much easier now! Our social worker was here from about 10-1, and in that time she walked through the entire house and we chatted about parenting in the kitchen. Walking her through the house was more like when a friend who hasn't been to our place before comes over and we show them around. She played with our kitty and complemented on my decorating and color choices (she loved the aqua, so there!).
She said it would take 4-6 weeks for our approval to be written and processed, and then after that our profile can be shown to birthparents! During the next 4-6 weeks, we need to get our profile done, which is a scrapbook showing pictures of us, friends, family, hobbies, etc and just telling our story. Of course I am excited to do it!
The only down side of the the morning was that I found out that the average wait in adoption is a year from APPROVAL, not application. I was thinking we would most likely have a baby by June, but it's more like next Christmas. However, a year is the longest wait for people in our position, so it still could be before that. Who knows. I am a little disappointed, but at the same time I have incredible peace resting in God's timing.
So, now we are going to go to Baby's R Us for fun! :)
