Our licenser came to the house today for our homestudy. (For those keeping track, this is the 3rd professional social worker who has come to survey our home since we started the adoption/foster process.)
I've been worrying much more about the foster homestudy, because the state requirements seemed much higher than private adoption requirements. (It's all about liability.) We passed, despite the fact that I housekeeping-impaired, and our licenser will write up our homestudy documentation this week. We meet her next week to review and sign the document.
In other "hoop" news, criminal checks for WA are done. I took my online fostering assessment today, and Hubby needs to take one too.
1. WA CPS checks to clear.
2. References to be turned into the licenser. I know at least 2 of our references received their forms and are working on them already. Really thankful for all friends and family who have served us as references along the way. We could not have done this without you.
Still to do (before or after placement):
1. Adoption/Permanency Training
2. Handbook Training
