Well, two weeks ago I told our homestudy coordinator that our clearances should be arriving soon. She said as soon as they come in, mail them to her at her home address (so she would get them sooner) and she would assign us a social worker right away. So I paid $20 to overnight the documents to her, you know to speed things up a bit, and I haven't heard a word since. She did email to say she received the documents, but that was it.
I guess her idea of "right away" and mine, are different. I didn't expect her to drop what she was doing, but I thought I would hear by now.
I guess I am just a little frustrated. Once we were accepted into the China program, if took her three weeks to contact me. When she did, it was just to email a list of things I needed to collect. It took her three weeks to email me a list, that was an attachment (already written). So do I get to sit for three weeks before she can pass me off to someone else (social worker)? She isn't the one actually doing the homestudy, she is just the coordinator.
The process is long enough as it is. I mean come on. I have been trying to move forward with this adoption for nearly THREE MONTHS (if you count signing with the other agency, then switching). I am no closer today than I was three months ago.
I am sorry to be so negative. It is just difficult. I have tried so hard to get all the documents done, ready and notarized. I just thought by now we would have had something happening. My prayer is that I hear from our agency early this week (UGH we lose a day tomorrow!) to schedule our homestudy. I don't believe I have unrealistic goals. Ideally, I would like to have all four visits done before we go to Florida on the 27th. I don't expect the report to be done, but at least the visits. Is that out of the question? Oh I hope not!
