The long wait is finally over for at least this step of the process. Today we are having our home visit by our new social worker for the independent adoption of Edgar . As we have had other visits in the past we kind of know what to expect. I just hope that this social worker can help us fill in the blanks and tell us what to expect next. There are so many moving parts this adoption that we cant wait till it is all done and over with.
Things that we expect that the social worker will be looking for are of the following:
1st she will want to see where Edgar is sleeping.
Next she will ask where we keep our meds,chemicals, and I am sure our alcohol.
The social worker is basically making sure that the house is suitable for Edgar and to make sure that we are keeping him out of harms way.
Once she inspects the house we will probably sit down and chat for a while about the process and what we should expect.
We are both excited about the meeting but just cant wait till it is over b/c it really is a hassle and a nuisance. Juan and I both agree that the county nor no one should have to come in and check the place out seeing that this child is not a county baby nor is he in the system. We are willing to jump through all the hoops and play their little games but we agree that it is not needed especially since heterosexual couples would not have to go through this process when they are having a baby naturally.
Updates will follow after our visit is complete as this is the first real step in the independent adoption process.
