The adoption home-study is complete. The "placement", foster/kinship, home study took place on January 20th; the first adoption home study took place on May 5; and now we just finished our final adoption home study/interview(s)!! I don't know how we got here so fast. It feels like just a few months ago we were day-dreaming about her "official move-in". Well, she moved in last week (as in ALL of her belongings are now here). She's been living with us for almost three months now. It feels pretty official --but we are just waiting on the "legal stuff". We will have a mini celebration when we are confirmed as her 'legal guardians' —we will paint her room and buy her a new bedroom set (she already has her zebra decor, which she absolutely loves!)
It's so similar to waiting for the arrival of your newborn —setting up the nursery and daydreaming of what it will be like... but she's already here! :D We're just waiting to release our excitement once it's "official".
We are so blessed! Thank you Jesus for your many blessings!!
