I just realized that we fucked up.
So last night we were talking with our adoption worker about our file. She said that she needed to make sure were cleared through Community Care Licensing (we’re in California) before she could come out and do our home study.
Um … we didn’t do our CCL inspection yet. In fact, we barely sent in our application a month ago. It was sent back because we didn’t fill it out correctly/completely. We just re-sent everything last week. I didn’t think it was a big deal because my schedule in my head went something like this:
May Interest meeting
June Initial interview
September Start classes
November Finish classes
Nov/Dec Get licensed by CCL
February Home study
March Home study approved
April Get matched
Of course things never go as planned. Things often take much longer than you thought they would but …. you never think it’ll be faster than you think. Last night when we spoke with our adoption worker, she again mentioned that they are having a “baby bonanza” right now.
Um … crap!
Now, I’m wondering if she was ready to go, go, go and now we’ve fucked it all up by not having our paperwork together. Everyone talks about how long it takes so I guess I didn’t feel like there was any hurry .. now I feel … like a crazy person! Aaagh!
