If you want to adopt, you must must must do a home study...Why are we so excited about this any who?
The laws of every State and the District of Columbia require all prospective adoptive parents (no matter how they intend to adopt) to participate in a home study. This process has three purposes:
- Educate and prepare the adoptive family for adoption
- Evaluate the fitness of the adoptive family
- Gather information about the prospective parents that will help a social worker connect the family with a child whose needs they can meet
That info came from this web page.
So a guy from Grace adoptions is gonna come to our home and test us. Ha, i mean he is gong to see how our boys interact...and...make sure tony and i have our stuff together (like a million documents). And see who we are as a family so the kid...we get paired with...gets a good match. I think this is super kid centered! Also, we are gonna have to pay him some money to make this Franco Family Report.
Pray that we are able to do this with accurateness and consistency!
Again these pic's are nearly a year old!
But aren't they darling!
I'll do my darnedest to get some new one's up soon.
If you have a good story about your home study to share..by all means leave it in the comments!
