Our social worker from Catholic Charities is due to arrive in 5 minutes. She will get to "inspect" our house for the home study. She will prove that it is a good place for Jeremiah to live and that he would be safe and sound here. Just another step in the process, but for adoptive families sometimes this is such a stressful step. I want the house to be just perfect. I want everything to be in place. I want her to not only think it's a safe place, but to think it's the very best place for him on the planet. I want it to be spotless and clutter free. So I'm trying to de-stress before she comes and I will remind her when she gets here that we just moved in 13 days ago. :)
Actually it looks pretty good since we only moved in 2 weeks ago. All the rooms are unpacked except for my "scrapbooking room" and in the living room/kitchen I even have out my fall decor.
Anyone else out there get nervous when people come over to your house?
Anyone else out there have any fun homestudy stories to share?
**She was here for 10 minutes. I showed her around and we were done. Why oh why do we stress about stuff that really isn't stress worthy?? Oh well- glad it's over. :)
