A Bit of Good News

Today I received a much-anticipated email from our social worker that she is FINISHED writing our home study document - yippee!!! (That is just the word I used in responding to her!) She emailed it over to Holt today, and hopefully they will be able to give it the "ok to proceed" comment by next week so we can pass it on to the court.

In the meantime, we are putting the finishing touches on the rest of the items needed for our dossier. I had my passport photos taken and picked them up yesterday.... now Micah just needs to get his done (hint hint if you are reading this) :)

Other than that we just have a few more documents that need to be notarized, and then a couple (including the home study) that will need to be "authenticated" by the Secretary of State. Pretty official huh?

We have been paper-chasing for close to 5 months now, and I am looking forward to getting through this stage!


  1. Congratulations ~ You're almost there!

  2. Exciting! Shouldn't take long for Holt to approve it! Ours took a week and a half.

  3. Congrats Bethany! It sounds like your making fast progress!

  4. Yay! I'm sure it feels great to be checking the HS off of your mental list. Congratulations and keep it up, sounds like you're close to the end of the document whirlwind!!!
