So, we had another busy week. Our home study is approved in the state of PA. Adoption Circle should have received our PA Home Study on Friday. I mailed the remaining paperwork needed for Ohio to our caseworker, and got copies of our profile printed. A friend from high school worked at the printing place, and she made some last minute changes and cleaned some things up for me before printing! Thanks so much, Abbie! We think it looks great, and hopefully the potential Birth parents will too! Hopefully, Adoption Circle will review our paperwork quickly and we will be officially approved and waiting soon!
Progress on our new bathroom is coming along. The cabinets, tub, shower, lights, and sink are installed. The walls are painted Toffee Crunch, and this week the floor will be laid, and the toilet will be ordered. (it's almond colored so it's not in stock) Can't wait for a bigger space and more storage! Luckily, we've been able to save a ton of money on this project by using second hand cabinets (which were pretty much brand new and going to be thrown away!) and having such talented men, especially my Dad, in our family who have spent hours helping!
This coming weekend will be our 5 year anniversary. With all the projects we've been doing this summer, we haven't had much time to relax and enjoy each other, so we are taking time to do just that. We can't wait. Hopefully the weather is hot and sunny so we can get outdoors and have some fun!
I'll update as soon as I hear something from Ohio. Hopefully sooner than later!
