Today we had our home study visit. Our agency assigned us a social worker, who came to interview both Dorie and myself, and to do a visual inspection of our home. It sounds more intimidating than it actually is...but I still made sure my house was clean and tidy! The social worker was wonderful and very friendly. We did a tour of my house, and then we sat at the table and talked for 3 hours. I am exhausted! Sweet Dorie got bored and went up to her room, where she managed to read an entire chapter book...amazing! She made me look good!
