Approved for two

Filed under: Africa Adoption — Tamra @ 10:14 pm

We had our homestudy interview tonight and it went very well.  Our social worker is wonderful.  She’s so good at making sure we realize the risks while still being friendly and supportive. 

We talked  about adopting two and though she recommended just one, she left it up to us to decide.  David almost said one but then changed his mind and told her to put two.  I was flabbergasted.  I was happy too, because I really wanted to be approved for two just in case.

So right now the plan is to adopt a toddler girl.  And if when we’re in Africa we feel impressed to adopt a baby as well, we will have the approval to do so.

    This is such exciting news! We really felt called to adopt in Africa for our second child, but found we can’t. So we’re waiting with our doemstic agency again–which is also exciting and wonderful, of course.

    Why do I have a sneaking suspicion that you will be coming home with two children in October?
