Completed homestudy in record miracle time! — The Bump
Adoption

Completed homestudy in record miracle time!

We got our approval letter for foster/foster to adopt/adopt from our agency over Christmas vacation. The state of Texas thinks we'd be okay parents!

We finished all paperwork, tests, Pride training, interviews, childproofing house etc in just three weeks -and that was with me taking two work trips!

The agency worked so hard for us because they knew a broadcast was coming up in December and they thought was a good fit for us and really wanted us to apply.

Our homestudy was sent around December 19 with deadline Dec 31. I hear it will take 3 weeks to go through all studies and make a decision. So now we wait and wait and wait some more.

  • Pretty much.  It is the step right before that. The social worker working this case sent out a broadcast to other agencies looking for adoptive parents. It is the announcement or call for applications. Next step will be review of submissions to determine adoptive parents. At least that is how it has been explained to me. Our homestudy moved so  fast because we said we were open to older kids and a sibling group and our social worker knew this broadcast was coming and thought we would be a great match.

    I don't know how long things will take from here. I have just about convinced myself we won't be chosen during the waiting season since submitting our home study for this case. I feel like I should use this holiday weekend to get bedrooms ready and other preparations, but I don't want to do so much that I get too upset if we are not chosen. My mind is pretty anxious.

    Indeed! I am far too stubborn.
