We also did the home tour. That was very non-eventful. She just looked in the rooms and that was about it! I think it is more to ensure that we have enough space for a child.
Next Tuesday we will meet to have our individual interviews as well as interview with the kids. She talks to the kids about their thoughts on this process. So that will be interesting to hear how they vocalize to her what they are feeling about the adoption.
Another thing Ryan and I are working on is deciding whether to get one child or two. We were talking about getting a sibling group. Amber helped us think through this process. We will just need to be broad in our requests. She said that this will make the matching process go faster as well. So we have specific wording that we will need to use in our dossier. Since we will be broad in our request, we really don't know who we will get. One or two, boy or girl, then ages (3 months to 3 years). So it will be so exciting to see who God bring us. I envision the day that we find out who we are matched with to be like finding out the sex of our babies in the ultrasound room. We will see how many and what kind! That would be so neat even if it was twins! Amber did say that AWAA has had a few twin sets come through but they are rare.
Today was a great day! I feel so at peace with this process which is totally not like me since I am kind of a planner :). I know God is with us and I love the calmness that I am experiencing!
Please be in prayer for our little one(s), for his/her parents and for the individuals caring for them.
