5th – DaRonn got to do his drawing yesterday. He has been evaluated, psychologically speaking.
6th, 7th, 8th, and 9th – At the second home visit yesterday afternoon the psychologist and the social worker took each of the kids off to the side and talked with them. The kids thought they were pretty hot stuff because they were asked what they felt about the adoption. The big kids were honest and chatted with confidence. Tyler just flirted. Hey, whatever works, right?
The ladies were pleased with the visit. They said they were trying to get everything done quickly so that they could present their reports to the judge. They said it would be a matter of weeks and we would have our girl. (!!!) Yes, they are that confident. Whew! Do you think that the oatmeal cookies I served had anything to do with it? The fact that they had seconds might indicate it to be so.
Friday morning we will wrap up the interviews with three things. Once more with DaRonn and I with the psychologist. Once more both of us with the social worker. A final sit down with the lawyer who directs the “escuela de padres” (parents school). As she was informing us of the agenda for Fri. AM I stopped her. I told her that I was under the impression that the “escuela de padres” took place one evening a week for a month. Here is what the psychologist said, “We have seen that you are experienced parents and that you are capable of parenting an adopted child. One meeting with the lawyer is fine.” It seemed almost like a formality that they were most interested in dispensing with. The social worker just smiled real big and nodded vigorously in agreement. Thank you God!
Wow, you guys, the prayers are working! Here are the updated prayer points:
- That ‘parents school’ would go smoothly
- That a discrepency with the blood work would be cleared up with no problems
- That the report being written would be turned into the judge and attended to by her quickly
Thanks so much folks! You are so awesome.
