Adoption Home Study 2/3

Our second home-study was on 10/28.  We made big progress and only have a little bit left.  Once again it was a great experience.  We got to talk about things like family traditions, support systems, and our parenting styles.  We feel very blessed to have a great social worker who is thorough but at the same time makes the experience special. 

And we got homework…

Due at our final home visit is our profile page and “dear birth parent(s)” letter.  This is the letter that will be read by the birth parent(s) when selecting an adoptive family.  Let us first say, we have never had to write anything this difficult IN OUR ENTIRE LIVES!!!  You would think writing about yourself wouldn’t be so hard but…ugh.  Between our excitement and our anticipation we have deleted and re-typed paragraphs about a million times.  Last night we bit off a big chunk.   We said a prayer asking for God to give us words to speak and “let ‘er rip.”

One of the funny moments was how it took us back to English class.  How do you write about yourself as a couple but not in the third person? First and third person?  Do we write an outline? We are over thinking it…
