Taiwanese Home Study...check!

Posted by Angie at 7:00 AM
Friday morning we received some awesome news.  If you read our post on our successful court date, then you know that next up in our process was waiting to hear when the home study (for Levi in Taiwan) would be scheduled.  We were hoping to hear soon, and praying that the date would not be too far out.  For instance, it would be bittersweet to hear that we had a home study date (yay) on September 10th (boo).

Anyhoo, on Friday we got an e-mail from our case worker...that...

OUR TAIWANESE HOME STUDY WAS ALREADY DONE!

Say what?!?!

:-D

What does that mean, you ask?  WELL...the social worker has to write up the report, and he/she has up to 30 days to do so.  The report goes to the judge.  The judge issues decrees.  Decrees = Levi is legally our son.  Decrees go to American Institute in Taiwan (AIT).  AIT sets appointment date.  We are in Taiwan for that date.

But HOW much LONGER does that mean?  WELL...the social worker could take the full 30 days to write the report (September 3), the paperwork could sit on the judge's desk for a month (October 3), and we could get the decrees/travel dates in October.

OR....

The social worker could turn in the report this week, the judge could look at it right away, and we could get decrees THIS MONTH!  Dare I dream?  Well, I will certainly pray!!  This little boy is ready for a forever family and we are ready for our son!

Levi getting love from one of the nannies
"Come get me mom and dad!  I rocked my home study!"
We would love it if you would say a little prayer for us, that things move swiftly and smoothly, whenever we come to mind!  Because your prayers have REALLY been working for us.  We are in awe...

Much love,
Blessed Mama
