We got an email from our home study social worker this morning. She says the home study will be complete this week and ready to give to the agency’s director of international programs on Tuesday (because Monday is a holiday).
Here’s me being picky because, as we all know, I’m already annoyed by this situation: Having something done next Tuesday (a week from today) does NOT constitute being done this week. Not that I’m going to parse words or anything. 😉
And, she said that in the next few days she’ll be contacting us with questions. This confirms my suspicion that she hasn’t been working on this until now.
Whatever. It’s fine. I get that she’s busy (we all are) and I’m sure that she has to juggle our home study with other home studies and with her own life. What’s another week, right? We really like our social worker – she made us feel so at ease throughout the four sessions we had with her – and in the grand scheme of things, I don’t think she’s taken an unreasonable amount of time on the home study. It’s just a matter of building frustration and of being SO CLOSE to getting over this hurdle.
Boy, it had better be ready on Tuesday!
(Don’t even get me started on the fact that Craig called his doctor’s office yesterday to inquire about the form I dropped off 3 weeks ago, and they had no idea what he was talking about. But they promised to look for it. Sigh.)
