Homestudy Headway

Thank God for Yom Kippur!! Frig and I have managed to make amazing headway with our home study paper work in the past 24+ hours. I had my doctors appointment yesterday after school. She drew blood, had me pee in a cup, and I have to go back for the TB test on Monday because they have to read it 48 to 72 house later. Initially, Frig was supposed to join me, but it didn'y work out. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

This morning we started with the Yale St post office at 9 am and the application for Chris' passport. It went very smoothly. The intake woman was very nice and there was only one person ahead of us. Next, hungry as we were, we stopped by Dry Creek for some sustenance. We went home, the plan was for Chris to fill out paper work while I tried to get him a doctor's appointment. The first number I called was able to see him at one. We worked on applications and forms for almost 2 hours. Chris took a short nap while I map copies of various documents. The doctor, once all said and done, took 3 hours. But I couldn't be happier. Chris felt very well taken care of and said that he would be very willing to continue seeing this doctor in the future.
Next, we went to find Rich at Under the Volcano and pass out the fourth reference form. While waiting for him to return from an errand we complete 2 more forms regarding our marriage and parenting.

I feel so good about the work that we completed today. The list has certainly shrunk and that is an amazing feeling. I hope that we will have all of the forms in the mail in less than 4 weeks from time of reciept!


  1. Hey Rachel! I saw your blog in your siggy and stopped by... I am SO excited for you and the Mr. Frig, hehe, on your adoption journey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, that's enough exclamation points.. ;)
    Anyway, the paperwork seems endless, I remember from when we got my little sisters, and I wasn't even the one having to fill it all out! But VERY soon I know you'll be holding your very own little one in your arms, and I can't wait for that day for you!!! :)

    see you on the JLIH board! :)

  2. Oh yeah and this might be a really dumb question, in fact, I'm sure it is, but have you checked out the waiting children @ the Holt site?? I always go there and check out the little Korean babies... I want all of them!! They're so adorable and sweet.. ;) :)
