Our Social Worker called and we have had two meetings so far. I guess we are to have seven contacts with her to complete our HS. So our first meeting was kind of a surprise. She called me on Saturday (12/6) at about 2 p.m. and asked if the next day would be ok to do our Home visit. Yeah, like I said . . . a surprise. Luckily I had cleaned my house for Abram's birthday and everything was essentially "ready." She told me that I didn't need to clean and that the purpose wasn't to impress her, and that put me at ease. We are very thankful for our Social Worker, she is easy to talk to and super friendly.
She did a tour of our house and we showed her where our daughter's room was. Chad actually had to work that day and so the boys and I gave her a tour. Then Kaleb (our oldest) read the book "Jin Woo" to her. She considered that meeting our home visit and Child interview.
Then this last Saturday we met her for our couples interview. I felt both meetings went very well, and we are pretty comfortable talking with her. The next step is training which will be in late January. There are two other AAC couples that we will have the training with. Looking forward to that, then she will do our individual interviews.
We are excited to get this part rolling and glad to have this month to keep us busy. I hope January and February fly by and so do the referrals!
