I have returned the barrage of paperwork to the home study agency and they have contacted me to set up my second home study interview for March 2.
I got a new job yesterday and hope to start around March 1. It will be an additional 45 minutes worth of commute each way per day, but I think it will be worth it. It's not much more money, but once established I can work from home and have a flexible work schedule. I told them at the interview about my adoption plans and they stated "We're a family company." We'll see. Whether or not they are a family company, I am a family person.
I haven't done anything on the doll but move it around. I need to start on the hands or feet next.
The custom door I ordered for my daughter's room has come in. It will be installed on February 22. Then I can start decorating the room.
Need to ask the social worker about our "community" room. I don't think it will be acceptable. I may need to have the opening between my room and hers closed off.
Good News: I received my last letter of reference (finally) Monday night.
Bad News: I have to specify a guardian for my child in case something happens to me. My original guardian(s) signed the forms and then felt they could not do it. That was last Friday night when they called me.
Good News: Saturday morning, I found another guardian in the most unlikely place. He had no problem agreeing to be the guardian for my child and was surprised that I has reservations about asking him. It wasn't because I didn't trust him, I just didn't think he would want to do it.
The doll head is finished for now. I did some work on the ears and now she is ready for the mold-maker (Me!) Meanwhile, I'll get started on the hands and feet. I would take a picture, but I can't find my camera. Hmmmm.
