The letter from the adoption agency asking us to send them a huge check to start the process of renewing our homestudy again.
We send the check, then they send us the paperwork. We fill out all the paperwork, get our physicals (yikes), ask people to be our references again (so embarrassing to ask for a third time), and then when it's all done, we can make an appointment to have our social worker come for another home visit.
Getting that letter is like opening the mailbox and having someone reach out and punch you in the stomach.
I will be waiting at least another month before I send the check in. I figure I have a little time before it's absolutely necessary. Especially if I move quick on the paperwork when it comes.
I will be spending the next month hoping for a miracle.
