Our first meeting with the social worker!

Quick update! Last Friday we went to see our adoption social worker to go over a few forms, and have a quick briefing and Q&A session. We were able to get a good idea of how much paperwork we'll need (a fair amount) and also what to expect on the homestudy. Apparently they just want to make sure that we have a room available in the house for our kid, as well as make sure we're not idiots ("sure kiddo, you can play with this poison-dipped dagger!")

It's not a whole lot, but it is, in a sense. If anything, the adoption is now taking shape, picking up steam, and we have some structure around it. We'll have another meeting with them at the end of the month for more forms to fill, then the homestudy will be next. Depending on whether they want us to make any changes as a result of the homestudy we should be ready to start the actual process with the government of Kyrgyzstan in as few as 8 weeks. That's just around the corner!

Anyway that's all we have for now. Please continue to pray for us as we continue along this journey.
