Fourth and LAST Meeting With Our Homestudy Agency

On Monday, August 6th, we had our fourth and very last meeting with our homestudy agency! it August already?!?

Wow, it feels good. Since contracting with AGCI the last week in May, we had what seemed like an endless pile of education, meetings, and paperwork, paperwork, paperwork.

Our last homestudy visit went well. We met with our social worker in her office. She had some follow-up questions to detail our homestudy, and that was it!

So, now our education and meetings are all complete!

Last week, Colin and I got a great start on all of our dossier documents. We completed several of them, including getting them notarized. Colin is amazing with organizing what we need to do and how it needs to be done. I am very thankful for him! Usually I am the organizer between us, but with him leading us in this adoption, I have felt less stress and anxiety over details and time frames.

Next step: completing our dossier!

P.S. We are very glad we are waiting to 'reveal' to you our parameters until we are on the waiting list. Why? Because they will not be what we thought they were going to be last week. Oh my! Someday we will have it figured out. Until then, a lot of prayer and discussion.


  1. Congrats! One step closer. :)

  2. Getting closer to the perfect plan, revealed one step at a time. Glad this meeting went well.

  4. Yay! Good work on the last meeting going so well. You're really getting there!
