Tyler had to work, Jessica wasn't up to it and the other family that usually joins us had other commitments.
I was hoping we'd have a 9th child by now, but the whole process is going very slowly. Our caseworker is moving soon, so I hope he finishes our home study before he goes. When we finished classes before Thanksgiving and they said it would be at least March before we were certified, I thought surely they were mistaken. They weren't.
With the issues with the twins, we have to be careful not to get a child with the same issues or too close in age. That takes out one of our top choices. Our first choice just went off the list, so he must have gotten a home. That's good news for him, but we had really wanted to find out more about him. He looked like a good match.
Hopefully we will have good news to share soon about the home study.
