This evening our social worker will be coming by to update our home study. Tonight serves as two reminders, first it has been a year since we decided to adopt again and all we have to show for it is one failed placement and 365 days of waiting. The second reminder...we're still in the game!
Whenever we talk, I try to get a little info from the social worker like do you have a lot of birth mothers you are working with? Are there many other couples waiting? Ask a few questions and hopefully get a few answers, although they are really good about staying on the fence. They never want to lean you one way or the other and give false hope. They usually keep their answers vague and neutral.
I dislike that about them. I hate waiting.
Here's to one year down and hopefully only a short time to go...
