After we mailed the giant pile of paperwork to our social worker, I decided to put adoption out of my head for a bit. We are getting married later this month (just over 2 weeks to go) and I figured I should re-focus on the wedding and honeymoon plans. I finished reading two of the books I ordered from Amazon, and then put the other ones aside for later.
My efforts succeeded! I got a chunk of wedding stuff done, had a lovely afternoon tea with my wedding attendants (including my sister, who is my maid of honour, who came from out of town), enjoyed two BBQ celebrations, and did some planning for our honeymoon.
And then, yesterday, we got a call from our social worker. I was at work, but she managed to get through to my fiancé, who stepped out of a meeting to take her call. Aaaaaaaand… we have our intake appointment scheduled for the end of July! It’ll be only five days after we get home from our mini-honeymoon (we have a bigger one planned in August) and I’ll be working until 7am the day of our appointment (which is at 10am, so you do the math on how much sleep I’m going to get), but I am not letting any of that bother me–even sleep deprived and frazzled, I am sure it’s going to go well. 🙂
Step 3 done, bring on step 4!
Oh, and a reminder. If you want to see a summary of where we’re at in our adoption process, please check out the process summary page. I update it frequently. 🙂
