Our home study was started the day before school was out. We had prepared the house all week. It was in "show" quality. Probably not what our social worker was looking for, after all, where would a 3 year old play in OUR home? We still aren't sure. But, we'll figure it out... as long as she doesn't touch the furniture. Oh dear.
We all had our interviews. Our social worker wrote up our homestudy, and the 18 page preliminary copy was back in our hands about 40 days later.
