Homestudy Update

We met with our Social Worker from Adoption Advocates today to get a homestudy update done so we can apply for a new I-171H that expires in August but with fingerprints that expire in two weeks in May. I just have to say Wendy ROCKS! She is so helpful and genuine. She is a blessing from God for sure. She really does care about the babies that find their forever families here but she also cares about those families waiting for their child. The meeting took just under an hour and we should have our homestudy update next week sometime.

Since we had this appointment today and I've been busy the past week trying to get our updated paperwork ready for her, the girls had the adoption on their minds again. Most days they don't ask about it, especially with NYC on their minds. But this past week-end while we were driving, Kaeterina asked me if we would still live in NYC when we traveled to get Baby K. I told her that I honestly didn't know. I explained to her how we are following God's plan for us as best we can and that means I don't know what next year will be like. She was OK with that answer. So was I. That's a big step for me. I like to have the next 5 - 10 years planned out - in general terms anyways. I've given that up to God now. Only He knows.
