What now?

Now that our home study interviews are complete, I don't know what to do with myself. We spent hours filling out paperwork, reading books, and preparing for interview questions. We went to two veterinary appointments, two doctor appointments, and fingerprinting.

All I have right now is a packet of information to fill out for our agency. Then we wait for our social worker to write our home study, which should be complete in about 2.5 weeks. I've finally had the opportunity to start reading parenting books, as opposed to those written specifically about the adoption process.

So what now? What do parents-to-be do while they are waiting for the next step in the adoption process? Hurry up and wait!

Baking seems a profitable way to wait!

Baking cookies is always a great idea!

We are foster parents and adopted one of the kiddos we had placed with us. There was lots of " hurry to wait"
