Well, I am super excited to say that our home study update process is almost DONE!!!
Our social worker came yesterday afternoon for our home visit, and it went great! I made sure to answer the door this time! Haha! :)
We gave her all of the paperwork that we have been working on over the past month, and she said that is everything that she'll need from us! She is going to work on our update over the weekend and have it ready for us early next week.
Then we'll be able to apply for an extension to our FDL (Favorable Determination Letter). This is the letter that basically approves our adoption with USCIS...US Immigration. Our current FDL expires soon, but we are allowed one free extension. So, hopefully I will be sending in our extension request by late next week!
I am so happy to say that once we have that FDL extension, all of our adoption paperwork will be UPDATED!!! Our 2nd round of paperwork will be DONE, and we will be referral-ready for Caroline Faith! YAY!!! :)
Thankfully, the home study update process has been way easier than the initial home study process. As we were talking to our social worker yesterday, we realized it had been a year and half since she had last been in our home. It's pretty crazy how fast the time has gone by!
