My house has literally NEVER been this clean. Our social worker came over for our first home visit today. We were up late last night and early this morning making sure everything in the house was perfect. We dusted, scrubbed, and I even cleaned the top of our cabinets because she would totally climb up on the counters and check them right?
The boys were really excited to meet her and were running around like crazy all morning. We prepared them the best that we could, but knew that Cal was going to want to show off all his cool tricks. Max was crying because he thought she was going to bring us our baby today, and now he is devastated that he has to wait longer. I think the wait might be the hardest on him.
I got up really early this morning, and as I was having a cup of coffee, I was watching a video of a family bringing their baby home from Korea. I was a mess. A sweet baby just like the one in the video, is the reason I cared so much about the house being clean. I am already so in love with our future child that I want everything to be perfect. I can picture them here with their brothers running around like crazy, and it makes me smile just thinking about it.
Our visit went really well, except for the fact that I was still in my pajamas cleaning when our social worker arrived. We had a little misunderstanding about what time she would get here. She was here for about 3 hours, and the boys gave her a tour of the house, told her how excited they were to get a new baby, and showed off all their cool tricks.
Tonight, as I was putting the boys to bed, we prayed for our baby in South Korea. We don’t know if they are born yet, but we already love him/her and are doing everything we can here to get them home as soon as possible. This child is going to be the missing piece to our family puzzle, and we are now one step closer to Bringing Home Baby Stoyk!
