It's been awhile since my last blog post and I wanted to update you all on the latest adoption news. I had my interview/home inspection with the State a few weeks ago. This is to obtain my certification for a foster/adoptive child to be placed in my home. And all went great and I was approved! The next step, which I'm currently in the middle of, is seeing a therapist. Part of the adoption process through the County is that you get an approval from a therapist stating that I have emotionally dealt with the infertility treatment being unsuccessful. So I've gone once and have one more session, and hopefully we'll be done and I can move on to the next step. And that next step will start sometime in January. I have 11 weeks of classes that I will need to take and once that is completed, I believe that is when the matching of a baby for me begins! January really can't get here fast enough! I'm so excited to meet my future child I can hardly stand the wait! Someone told me on my birthday this past week, that this is probably the last birthday as a non-parent. And that could very possibly be true! Next Halloween I could be taking my little one trick-or-treating, or going crazy overboard at Christmas! It's very exciting to think about it! I know my life is about to change in every possible way, and I can hardly wait!
