Wow~This first year of waiting has just gone by in a blur. We finally finished all of our paperwork for our update~new TB skin tests, drug screens, background checks, more background checks, copies of everything personal...sometimes it just seems so unfair. If we were able to get pregnant, we'd probably have 2 children by now and no one would have cared about any of these things. Oh well, that is not Our Journey.
Now we are preparing for our yearly Home Visit. Our new Case Worker will arrive at 1 pm tomorrow~this cleaning may be an all nighter. I'm not as anxious as I was last year, since we kind of know what to expect. But, it is never easy having a virtual stranger come into your home to judge whether we will be good parents. By tomorrow we'll be able to serve a meal off of the floors; now, is that very realistic? I think the Home Visit that comes about 2 weeks after we have received our Joyous Gift will be the most telling of all...formula on the floor, walls, maybe furniture; hopefully a bath within the past 24 hours (for the baby, 48 for us); opening the door in pajamsa at three in the afternoon; and holding a precious little baby in our arms...yes, that will be The Best Home Visit Of All!
