We met with our social worker today to update our home study with Taiwan particularities. I say "our" social worker, although she is really our second social worker. Our original home study social worker has since relocated to the east coast (through no fault of ours, I'm told). In any case, we had a delightful conversation with our new social worker about our decision to go with Taiwan. Our home study update should be completed within the next 24 hours and will be shipped off to the government agency which will then re-issue our updated 171H. Woohoo!
That's the good news. The bad news is that there is now an extensive wait list at our agency for the Taiwan program. Of course, even with the extensive wait list, we are still only 3-4 months away from receiving our referral.
We're not shopping yet, lest we somehow jinx the process, but we are starting to think about names and painting the nursery. Of course before thinking about painting the nursery, we need to create the nursery from the space that is currently my office. How we will do this, I do not know, but that is a problem for another day.
