"Phone Session"

I wanted to write a quick update on my "phone session" with my Social Worker today. First of all, thank you so much to all of you who checked on and prayed for me today regarding the phone session! It went great! Our Social Worker is so sweet and easy to talk to. The session literally lasted 10 minutes. She basically asked logistical questions such as:
"Has yours or your husband's job changed?"
"Do y'all still live in the same house? Remind me how many rooms it has."
"What are your plans for childcare?"
"Do y'all want to change your age request of a child?"
Etc. Etc.

She was so kind and said,  "I remember you guys and am not concerned that this will impact your adoption, which is why I chose to just do a phone session."
WHEW! Deep breath  by me :))

So what now? She is planning to submit our letter of approval this week and Lee and I have a few forms to complete independently. All of this can be done while we continue to wait. This doesn't impact our "place in line." I will let y'all know when we are officially a concurrent family!

One of the greatest blessings of this entire adoption process has been meeting people I would have never met otherwise. I absolutely love getting encouraging Facebook messages or emails from people who follow my blog. This morning I received an encouraging message from a new fellow adoptive mom! And guess what... she lives in the Reservoir area!! A.N.D. I think she and her husband are Mississippi State fans :))
Can't wait to meet my new friend in person!
Anyway. I shared that to say that I love her T-Shirt fundraiser! I wanted to share with you guys because these T-shirts are so, so cute!

Happy Tuesday guys!


  1. Thank you so much for your sweet words and sharing our shirt! I just love love love all the ways The Lord smiles down on us :) so glad your call went great! Concurrent family building paperwork is a breeze! And... GO DAWGS!!! :)

  2. I guess now is a good time to de-lurk and let you know that another Bulldog-loving Ethiopian adoption momma reads your blog too! I've definitely met some great people over the past nearly 2 years that we've been in the process! Such a great positive as the wait drags on....


Thanks so much for your comments!
