Shane and I had our first home study interview last night. We met Kim, our social worker, at the CAS (Christian Adoption Services) office. She put both Shane and I at ease. We were very nervous. We had this impression that our entire life would be viewed under a microscope and we would be judged on what kind of parents we are now to our boys and if we were capable to parent our new daughter. The interview was nothing like that at all. Kim asked us all kinds of detailed questions about us as a couple, feelings about adoption, birth parents, our immediate family and extended, life style, ect. We answered all her questions without hesitation. It felt more like a conversation than an interview! Also, dealing with a christian agency is wonderful because their is freedom in sharing about our personal relationship with Jesus Christ and how He is involved in our daily lives!
We still have three interviews left. Two individual ones and then the home visit. I am much more relaxed about these upcoming interviews.
I am so grateful for Christian Adoption Services! It is such a wonderful agency and we are so blessed to be working with them!
