It was kind of nice to have our homestudy on Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving since it made us get the house cleaned up before the holiday. It wasn't that messy to begin with but it was nice to have an earlier deadline so that we didn't have to do all the work just before my family came for Thanksgiving. Waiting for a homestudy is a bit more hectic than actually having one. She asked us general questions about eachother, our relationship, our children's personalities, why we were adopting, and about our extended family. They needed financial information and asked us questions about our jobs. Now that our part of the homestudy is done we just have to wait until we get our offical approval letter. Once we have this letter then the time starts to tick for our wait on our referral. She said to expect this sometime in December. So come next Christmas we just may know who is joining our family, although it may be a while longer until they come home.
