Well, everything is turned in, the social worker has everything she needs for our Home Study. Now, the only thing to do is *wait* for her to write it. Secretly, I was hoping it would be done today so that we could send it off to immigration, but, that expectation was pretty unrealistic.
I really hate to wait. I am a "do"er. That's just me, I get things done. Lot's of times I don't understand what the hold up is. I just want to know what's going on, when it will be complete and then what will happen next. Is that too much to ask? Apparently so!
I "subscribe" to Joyce Meyer's facebook thing and this popped up the other day:
Patience is not the ability to wait, but how you act while you're waiting.
Oh boy! Well, I'm pretty much a failure because I don't wait well. I usually whine and complain about what is taking so long! Sounds like I haven't grown up and and I well into my 30's. There are lots of moving parts in adoption and I am finally understanding why it takes awhile.
So, I have decided I will wait better. THANKFULLY, we are leaving for vacation on Saturday so my mind will be focused elsewhere. We will still have access to e-mail, so our process won't slow down, but not sitting at my desk all day will certainly help give my mind a break!
Hopefully, by the time we get back we will be ready to send the home study to immigration for approval!
