The Waiting Game

It has been awhile since I have posted, because I have not had a whole lot to say.  Our homestudy progress has kind of stalled.  I have been working on our profile, which will be completed by the end of the week, but next to that we have nothing left to do.  As much as I would like to start talking to adoption agencies, I know that there is really no point until our homestudy is done. 

We do not meet with our practitioner again until she has a rough draft of the homestudy ready for us.  I have tried to determine a time frame with her on when this might happen, but have had no luck.  So basically our hands are tied.

Honestly, I find this very frustrating. One of the first things I said to our practitioner was "I know that homestudys can take as little as two months.  How long do yours take?" Her answer was "a little longer than that."  June 1st was four months from our first phone conversation, and the 21st will be four months from our first meeting.  Grrrr...

Nic has been very busy with work, so he seems to be handling the wait better than I am.  He keeps telling me there is nothing I can do.  He is right about this, of course, but it does not make it any easier.  I just wish she would give me a date when it would be completed.  Even if it is another month away, at least I would have an idea of when, and could start scheduling some meetings with agencies.  I can't force her into anything, and killing her with kindness has gotten me nowhere. 

All we can do is wait.... Thank goodness it is summer and there is a lot to do.  If this was February I may have been pulling my hair out.
