The meeting with the SW was super easy. She and Frig have really hit it off and most of the time they talked about movies, TV, music and her son. There was a short check list that she did have to fill out, but she didn't leave her seat on the floor of the Great room to verify anything that we said. Some of the questions were extremely inane for a city dweller (Does the family burn their garbage in an area away from kids?) and others expected us to be ready for our child to arrive tomorrow (Are the electrical sockets covered?). I really do like our SW. When she got to the electrical socket question she answered it her self with "Of course they will be when the child comes." She informed us that she will also do our post placement meetings, we have to do 2 of them, and the way she said it led us to believe it was at her request. She even offered to help get the documents from Austin, when she is there for a training in a few days, if we needed her to.

There was a list that Frig and I were supposed to fill out since the last time we had met. This was a rather long check list detailing all of the special needs we would be willing to consider. When she asked me for the form I got very nervous. It was so long ago. Would I be able to find the form? Did we "do our homework" and fill the form out? I went into the office to collect my adoption folder and brought it back into the Great room. Karen, the SW, says "I didn't bring an extra. I said to myself 'I don't need to bring an extra these people are with it'." Thankfully she was right. Frig said he had no doubt I would be able to produce it.

We also received the news that Korea is moving quickly. This came from Karen's lunch time conversation with the HS agency. Now if only we can get everything we need together so it can be sent to Korea.

Karen left, went home, and brought a movie back that she thought Frig would enjoy. Did I mention how lucky we got when we were assigned our SW?
