You know what they say about the best layed plans, right? Well, it looks as if we are going to be steered off course a bit. Our homestudy is taking longer than we anticipated, because it hasn't even begun yet!!! We were thinking that the homestudy began as soon as we turned in our application, and turns out we were wrong. All of the references needed to return their forms first, and the meetings don't start immediately after that either. And we won't be one of the lucky ones who finish the homestudy in a couple of weeks. Looks as if it will be one meeting per week for 4-5 weeks beginning the week of July 18th.
Our goal of having LID in early September, is now looking impossible. Question is when will our LID be? And it looks as if we are subject to the new rules the CCCWA implemented this year (more references, more visits after adoption, more training hours). Not a biggy, but taking longer to reach our little ones plays a sad tune in my heart.
