Homestudy Update Paperwork.....check!!

FYI, do you know how hard it is to type with one baby on your arm and one bouncing on your feet? Just sayin...

Anyhoo, I have two herniated disks in my back and have been down and out this week, so I was not my usual jump in and get things done kind of self. I was sedated and had my spine/back injected yesterday and am feeling much better and today I completed all the paperwork to get my homestudy update completed and we both have fingerprint appointments on Monday, so we will be scheduling our home visit and wrapping this part up!!! YAY!! I can't remember if I am suppose to go ahead and send in my I600a application now or if I am suppose to wait until my homestudy is done...I will have to look that up. I am scheduled to work the next 11 days straight so it will be an interesting next couple of weeks, to say the least. I knew we would be adopting, but didn't know who/when so I volunteered to work as many days as possible until OCTOBER!!! Now, Andrey has a $20,000 grant and I don't really need to work that much, but I already signed up for it, so at least I can be saving some money for when we are off work to go get our new little man. Plus I will need a couple thousand more dollars to complete the adoption, so it will all work out!

Will update when I start seeing some progress!!!
