Who doesn’t love a psychological evaluation on a Monday? We had our psychological evaluation via FaceTime today. Having a psychological evaluation is a requirement that South Korea has for all prospective families. We were really thankful to be able to get it done before school started, but I am not going to lie, I was super nervous about this one. We heard about this doctor through one of our Korean adoption support groups, and were thankful he could do a FaceTime interview. There are not a lot of psychologists that meet Korea’s requirements in our small town.
The interview was actually very laid back, and the doctor was pretty funny. We spent about an hour on FaceTime with him asking us about our family and relationship history. Have you ever had someone taking notes while you are talking? Well when someone is evaluating your sanity, it sure does feel like they must be thinking you are all kinds of crazy when they are feverishly writing down everything you say.
Now we have to complete two addition paper and pencil tests to send back to him. After he receives those tests, he will write up our results to send to Korea.
Update: We ended up spending about 6 hours completing the tests he sent to us, and are ready to send them off to the doctor. Let me tell you… the amount of paperwork that comes a long with an adoption is UNBELIEVABLE! Aside from this pyshc evalutation, we spend at least 2 hours a night working on paperwork for one of our agencies. It does feel really good to be able to check things off the list, and having this evlauation done means we are one step closer to Bringing Home Baby Stoyk!
