Our social worker arrived at 7:30 p.m. The house actually looked kind of nice with all of the many candles we had lit and luckily our gas fireplace was working so our living room at least was warm and cozy. We all sat around the fireplace and chatted for about an hour. It was really a very relaxed conversation. She asked us a few more questions...nothing major...and then we talked a bit more. She told us she'd have the report written up this weekend.....which I was sooo surprised to hear that she could do it that quickly! Glenn and I were both on quite an excitement high after she left! Once step closer to our referral and being matched with our baby!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(On a side note in case anyone is interested in our electricity drama........... As it turns out, PECO Energy had to come out that night and dig a GIANT hole in our front yard to assess the problem. It seems that when Verizon came through our neighborhood some time ago to put in their wiring for their Fios services in, they nicked our PECO wires and Thursday was the day they finally burned all the way through! So, they fixed it temporarily and the power came back on very early the next morning. But....it doesn't end there!! I picked up my phone Friday morning...and still no phone service! So I call Comcast, (who we have our phone, internet and cable tv through), and they had to send someone out. It seems that when PECO's crew was fixing their wires the night before, they now cut right through our Comcast wires! So now we have a big orange cable strung across our driveway that has us hooked up to their power source via our neighbor..(thanks, Stevie!!!), until they can dig open the big 'ole hole themselves to fix their wires! What an adventure! I'm just glad to have my phone and internet back! It's amazing how lost you feel and so cut off from everything without it. How did we ever survive without e-mail and internet service!! :)
