Our immigration approval for our China adoption expires in a few months. Sooo, we need to do some updating! We met with our social worker on Sunday to start working on our homestudy update. This means that we will need new fingerprints, new background checks, new physicals, new driving records, and so on and so forth… It’s hard to believe it’s been eighteen months since we were approved by immigration to adopt from China.
Interestingly, our homestudy for Taiwan is six months old this month. The courts in Taiwan require that our homestudy be less than six months old at the time of our referral. Since we are still looking at several(hopefully not more) months before referral, we need to get that updated, as well.
So, over the next couple weeks, we will be busy with more paperwork, and with our social worker getting updates done.
I’m sad that we’re doing updates for two different adoptions, and we don’t have a referral from either one to show for it, but I am quite hopeful that we won’t have to update again anytime soon for at least one of them!
