*Knock, Knock, Knock.

Ok, this is it, the social worker is here.
(I think it's funny that Alex refers to her as "The Inspector")

*Deep Breath.

*Quick Prayer...
Lord, help Alex not to say something crazy to try and be funny!  This is not the time or place!

We just completed our first home study with our social worker.  She was very nice and went easy on us.  We weren't nervous, but there is something about having someone in your home looking around, asking you all kinds of questions, and writing up a report on you.  We have a few more papers to get for her and one more meeting than we should be done with our home study until post placement, assuming we pass.


  1. I am so excited! I still remember the feeling when our "inspector" came to the house...She was super nice, and it couldn't have gone any better, but you still have to wonder what they think about you! Good luck with everything!

  2. Hey, you got off easy. Some friends of ours who adopted from Ethiopia this year had the social worker in their house when their 4 year old piped up and said she wanted a "white" baby.

    Yeah, they were embarrassed. But they still got their baby boy.
