It's been one month since we have turned in our paperwork and we have had no contact with DSS. I called today and, you guessed it, left a message. I am trying to find a balance between "bugging the crap out of my social worker" and "letting her know our persistence is a good quality." But...
I just want to move on and get the homestudy and inspections done already! I want my precious child(ren) into my home and out of harm's way. We were so hoping to become a waiting family by Christmas and that dream seems to be fading fast.
Sorry for the downer post, but you guys know you are my ventlet (That's a new word I made up: vent + outlet = ventlet. You like? Feel free to steal it, I don't have the $ to copyright.)
"But those who wait on the LORD shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint." - Isaiah 40:31
