We DID It...

Our home study has been done. It went much like I expected it to. The social worker stayed just over an hour; she toured our home, interviewed us and the kids, and was on her merry way. Aubrey had lots of interesting things to say. Here's one gem:

Social Worker: Do you think you'll help your parents with the new baby(ies)?

Aubs: Yeah, (big sigh) I'll probably have to quit school. My mom has no idea what it's like to take care of babies anymore. She's used to Blaine and me who do everything for ourselves!

me: Aubrey, have you ever been a parent?

Aubs: Nope, just read a book. It was about a dog who had puppies, but they were strays and their lives were hard so, it applies.

Ahhh...the mind of our eight year old! That's just one of the exchanges that had me putting my face in my hands and shaking my head. Thankfully, the social worker loved her! She thought she was bright and hilarious (she is, but some people just don't know how to take her)! So, I think we "passed"! We are now waiting for the report to be filed and then we'll go to court. We're still on track for a March 31 egg retrieval and embryo transfer of either April 3 or 5, depending on how many embryos we have. I am SO excited!

Yea!!! I'm so excited to hear that all went well. Sorry I've been MIA - am wasting some time today and trying to catch-up with all of the blogs I try to read regularly. I think its been a few weeks since I last visited, so I may or may not get caught up, but I am trying!!

Hang in there! We are still on-hold, waiting for Allison's appointment on Thursday, but I have faith that everything will finally be fine with her and we will move forward! We are looking at a 2nd week of March transfer at this point :)
