Well today was the final home study visit. Leading up to the visit my nerves were a wreck. I had asked her if the room had to be child ready and she said no. So I left it as is just tidied it up. I will however have to prepare it in a week or so for pictures. Pictures of my house and the room need to be submitted with my dossier; along with pictures of the local park and my family and the fun things we do. Anyway, I was very nervous because for some reason, though my house is nice and clean and all those things, I just worried that maybe it wasn’t as nice as someone else’s. Or maybe she would think it looks too nice and tidy and not child friendly. I am the type of gal that worries about everything! So needless to say, the wait until her 10am arrival was nerve-wracking for me.
She came and I gave her a tour and she said it was lovely and clean and perfect for a little one. The room is plenty big and the play area downstairs will be perfect. She was very complimentary and I am very happy and confident the report will be A-ok. She is going to work on writing it tomorrow and is hopeful that I will have a draft Friday no later than Monday to read over. Isn’t that great news!!??? So, more progress.. YAY!!
On another note, the INS office sent me a letter stating that as soon as the home study is done, I need to send it to them so they can send me a date for fingerprints. They also requested I send them a form I-134 and some other paperwork (bank statements, employment verification letter and taxes for the last year). I did as asked even though it seemed off since I sent all that to the Home Study place…..
I also found a friend who is a notary and she will be able to notorize everything for me 🙂 DOUBLE YAY!!! Alright.. must get back to work….
