5 Years Ago

Yesterday was our 5 year anniversary! Amazing!  I cannot believe we have been married 5 years...time flies.  What is more amazing is we have been together for 8 years!  During our time together we have been able to experience some great moments in each others lives.  We graduated high school, we survived being separated by basic training and two deployments, and we learned first hand that what doesn't kill us makes us stronger!  We became adults together which I think does not happen much anymore.

I haven't posted in awhile and decided to sit down to update everybody as to whats going on.  Our home study has been a huge source of stress and frustration from the beginning.   First is was gathering all the documents that are needed, then meeting with a social worker several times, and now waiting for the adoption agency to give its blessing on it.  We had our last meeting with our social worker in April and now here we are in June and still no completed home study.  Right now I feel like we are at a stand still while we wait for SMIA to review corrections made to our home study( not our fault but the social workers).  I was hoping to have paperwork being finalized to send to Poland by now but looks like end of summer/fall before that happens.  Again adoption is a huge lesson in patience.  This is a hard lesson for someone like me who wants instant results.
