This morning, Kelsey and I had our third home study interview for the adoption. Our first two interviews were separate; this one we did together. All in all, it wasn't too difficult...simply confirming the old saying that if you tell the truth, it's easier to keep your story straight.
The original plan was for the home visit to take place in a few weeks, pushing the finalizing of our home study to mid September or later. Today, things took a twist as the woman doing the study announced she could do it sooner. Like, Wednesday. This means the home study could be done by August 26th, putting us in a position to receive our baby....oh, like, fast.
This all became remarkably real to me today. It's been real all along, but today we kicked in the afterburners. I will soon be a father of four. Four children in the rear view mirror (that is, if our rear view mirror would stay in it's place...it falls off). I'm jazzed.
