On Interviews and Ultrasounds
Autumn at the Memorial Park Grotto.
Wednesday, Mike and I went to our joint interview at the Bethany offices. We had a slight glitch in the babysitting schedule so Autumn ended up coming along. She did a great job being patient and was crazy excited to be a part of the process. Although initially disappointed that we wouldn't be taking a baby home that day, Autumn perked up and drew a picture for our social worker. It was a picture of "mama, papa, me, molly and her leash, our new baby and a rainbow." So sweet.
We found out for sure that we are almost at the end of the home study. At the joint interview, we scheduled our separate interviews and last week I purchased the online classes and two of the required books. We finished one of the books while we were on Easter Break. After that is the home study and the review of our profile book and then it's time to wait for a birth mom to choose us! It feels like this has taken forever and no time all at once. With that in mind, don't forget to stop by our Etsy shop! I'm also taking custom jobs for items such as stationery, party printables, or word art so definitely email me if you have some ideas.
Oh, random subject change, I had my thyroid scan yesterday. I won't get the full results until my appointment May 17 but the ultrasound technician said she didn't see anything scary or really big. That could mean anything but I'm going to take it as a good thing! I also got my labs back and, of course, everything came up clean like it always does. We'll see what the doctor says when I see him next month. Thank you so much for your prayers!
