Six month post placement visit

A social worker stopped by this evening for our 6-month post placement interview.  Six months!  Wow… we’ve been a family for six months.  It feels like longer, yet not long at all.  What I mean is, it feels like she’s been part of our lives forever.  Yet, she’s barely more than 14-months-old.  Hubs and I have said the same thing about our relationship.  Strange thing, love.  Creates a time warp, I guess.

It went well.  She sat in on our dinner.  We’re busy people and that’s just how it is, but what a better way to see a family in their natural habitat than at dinner?  Snowflake was a little melty just before dinner, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.  She surprised me by turning down her ribs, but eating lots of peas – just after we informed the SW that she’s a true carnivore and we need to get her veggies into her first because once we give her meat the veggies are done.  “Ha!  See, lady, I eat lots of veggies.  My mom doesn’t know what she’s talking about.  Don’t believe a word she says!”  Then Hubs and I ate a little and answered questions, while Snowflake toddled about and was just charming.  Anyway, I think we’ll get a good report. 

Six months!  Wow.

  1. No way you’ve been home 6 months!! It seems like just the other day that you came back.

  2. Six months already? Wow!

  3. Sounds like it went well. I know what you mean about them feeling like they have been with us forever. I can imagine him being with us from birth even though that was not the case.

  4. funny how the social worker visit changes from the first home study, isn’t it?!
