Well, there were 141 votes on my poll on when we'll get our referral and 71% think it will be November. I can definitely live with that. We may actually be about 60 days away from seeing our sweet girl's face!
Today we had an appointment with our social worker (SW) to update our home study certification for the last time before we travel. Our furbaby, Lucy, decided she would be a little stinker while the SW was here. Joe and I took the SW down the hall to see the nursery and we stood in there and chatted for a few minutes. When we came back through the kitchen to the table, Lucy was just polishing off the SW's last bite of coffee cake and standing up on Joe's chair to get the rest of his!
Oh my God, I was SOOOO embarrassed! Thank goodness she has a good sense of humor. She said she'd leave that part out of our update. Gee, she probably thinks that Lauren will have to compete with Lucy for food! ;)
Hopefully, we'll have an update memo from the SW within a week and it will be on the way to the court to be certified. It's really nice to have this step over with! Once we get our certification back, I'm going to request our free extension of the I-171H. It doesn't expire until March, but I want to be on the safe side.
