Painting and Waiting...

I can't believe it's already Thursday. How can a week drag yet move so fast all at the same time? Glenn and I both got our hopes up when our social worker told us last week that she'd have our home visit report done by the weekend. We forgot that it then has to be passed on to the directors at the homestudy agency before it goes to our adoption agency director. I have been told the norm is about two weeks from the home visit until we may hear something about a referral. So, in the meantime we've been trying to get some painting done in the room that is intended for the nursery. The walls are done, so between today and tomorrow the plan is to work on the molding and the doors. Then it's time to start painting the furniture that my parents were very kind to give us. (thanks again, mom and dad!!) We know we have plenty of time to do all of this, but since I am between jobs right now I figured I would take advantage of the time.

I also am so excited for my new friend Jackie. She and her family picked up their daughter, Juliana, last night at JFK so today is their first day as a family of five!!! Looking at her photos of their first meeting last night gave me goosebumps! I am so happy that Juliana is now in her forever home. Congratulations!!!!!


  1. Wow, I can't believe you could have a referral within 3 months of signing up. That's amazing.
    Good luck painting!

  2. Thanks for the shout out, Coll! This is going to be your week, I know it! Painting blue, huh? Feeling boy, are you? I am so excited to hear your news!
