We finished up our Home Visit this week and it went really well. Did I mention that I love our Case Worker!!! She is so good at making us feel right at home and keeping us informed. She said she could be done with the paperwork in two weeks!!!! At that point the lawyer will have our profile and be able to shop it around- we are still going the "private adoption" route so the lawyer will be the only one shopping around our profile. And we'll be praying that the right birth mom comes her way!!!
We were scheduled to have our adoption physical on Monday only to find out that our Doc is not seeing anyone this week/month. We were re-scheduled for today with a nurse practitioner. I thought we'd be in and out and on to the next thing, but there are some lab test that need to be done...luckily we asked first if our insurance would cover those tests. It would have been a huge shocker to get the tests done then later find out they weren't covered. Two of the four were covered, but might be cheaper at the Health Department....we were told.
Daniel and I attended a funeral of a friend from our church this afternoon. He was in my parents small group and was always lending a helping hand. He loved music and Daniel was able to sing two songs at his funeral. It was a wonderful memorial of a man who dearly loved Jesus. Rick Hurst you will be truly missed.
After the funeral went to the Health Department this afternoon and probably arrived at about 2:59....it seemed we waited 3 minutes until someone came to the front desk to check us in only to find out that they stop taking walk-ins at 3:00pm. We all looked at the clock which said 3:02pm *Daniel checked his phone which said 3:01pm. I really think I said "seriously" out loud. I'm not sure why it made me so mad. I understand that they have to cut off their line at some point, but really we were so close!!!! Luckily we have very flexible schedules, what about those individuals that really need medical care and don't have such flexibility or the ease of travel arrangements. I was so ticked off. It took me awhile to calm down. I so wanted to check this off the list today, but now it looks like it will be sometime next week. It the big scheme of things it wasn't that big a deal, but I wasn't expecting it and it totally threw me for a loop.
Honestly this is the first thing that hasn't been easy in the adoption process....which is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!
And by the time we're holding a little baby in our arms I will have completely forgotten this set-back.
