Our Home Study is Complete - We just have to sign off

We've received a message that our home study is complete and we need to read through it and sign for it before it can be sent to the provincial government for approval.  We were going to try to make it over to our agency and do this in the office last week, but we ran out of time.  Bob's heading to Albania to work until the third of May, so they're going to send the papers to us in the mail and we'll have to get him to sign them when he gets back.  Once we send this in, we'll have to wait for 1 - 2 months for approval.  So, it looks like we won't know whether we've passes until June or July.

Our Home Study Report is in the Writing Stages

Our Social Worker has finished our series of interviews with us and has written our Home Study Report, which is now in the editing stages.  We'll be asked to review the final draft and sign off on it before it gets sent in to Children's Services.  Once we're approved, we can send the approval and report to One World Adoptions and request the match to our child in DRC.  The report will be in the hands of Children's Services with our Provincial Government for about 4 - 6 weeks, so it will likely take another 2 months for approval.
