We are on our wayChris' status on his Facebook page last evening:
...just returned from our first meeting to kick off the home study (aka the process that will prove we aren't going to be totally hopeless as parents). We now have more paperwork to fill out then when we bought our house. Of course, you can always sell your home. Kids are forever and appear to result in a correspondingly larger amount of things to be signed.
So very true.
Our lovely social worker, M, handed us two-page check list of things we need to do...mostly, as Chris writes, involving killing off any number of trees.
Do I feel guilty about this?
Yes. But not much...
We're officially on our way to becoming Plus One.
