we got such great news today!
the adoption profile paperwork can all be printed out from the computer!
i know, this is not what you all were thinking would be such great and wonderful news - but to the light at the end of the tunnel - this was a critical piece of news. i am now officially done with my personal paperwork and just have to fill out one last joint form while husband finishes his personal profile data.
i am not quite sure how people say they've finished all of this in a weekend. we've agonized over these questions to the point of possibly overthinking them. i just feel such responsibility to properly communicate the history of my life, the gifts of my parents, the love and strength of my husband, and the hopes for our child that i feel like i have to analzye every word. hopefully all of the thinking, even if it was excessive, will help our social worker get to know us better.
husband is fastidiously working on his questions and i think he's in the home stretch! i cannot wait until we get this packet in the mail. the countdown to the post office is on!
