Oh yah, and some news

As for some actual updates, just a few quick ones before I hit the hay tonight.

We're moving on to the next step in the process!!!

1) All references have been returned. Thanks so much to all of those folks.

2) We handed in our big packet of information that even included some witnessed documents (thanks very much to those witnesses - you know who you are).

3) We have been officially assigned a social worker - her name is Jessica and she is clearly quite capable and caring at the same time. Jessica will guide us through the rest of the process

4) We have scheduled our joint interview on Thursday. This is a large part of our home study - a word your going to see here repeatedly over the next couple of months. Next will be individual interviews and a home visit. We home to complete those by the end of January.

5) After stopping on our way home yesterday for our traditional post-Lancaster milkshake from Sonic we picked our our first required reading (Raising Adopted Children) and a map of Guatemala from Barnes and Noble. I still can't figure out why Sonic doesn't have chocolate ice cream. Oh well. In case you didn't know, they're building one in Morgantown right now.

That's the update for now!

Hello Greg! I found your blog a while back through your comments on Mel and Jer's blogs and I debated posting a comment but I did want to say congratulations. I am very happy for you and Melissa. Parenting is a fantastic adventure and you've even had a bonus step that most of us don't get to experience. Keep pressing on because your ultimate goal will be beyond your wildest dreams.

Also I hope you don't mind but I linked your blog to a friend of mine who is going through an adoption experience as well. I thought maybe it would be an encouragement to her.

Congratulations again and Merry Christmas.
