Yes, you are in the right place. I have been contemplating switching the latest news section of this website to a blog for a while. It is going to make it much easier for me to update the page so hopefully I will get around to updating more often than once a week. Also, this will make things easier for us in China. Feel free to leave us comments and tell us what you think. I have left comments unmoderated for now but I may turn that off if I get any spam comments. I have also created a link to the old latest news pages on the right.
This week we actually got to do some adoption related stuff. Our home study is expiring again at the end of October so we need to go through the home study update process again, hopefully for the last time. The update process is pretty painless in MA as long as you have not changed jobs or moved, which we haven't. We just fill out a form for our social worker stating nothing has changed and send in our CORI and DSS background check forms. The one hassle is the DSS form needs to be notarized but we took care of that at our bank yesterday.
Still not a whole lot of rumors out there, the only recurring one we have seen is that people with log in dates up to November 30th have been told to expect a referral in the upcoming batch. There is also a rumor that they will get to December 5th. We are really hoping they will get to December 5th as Nov 30th would be a big disappointment. Hopefully we will know for sure this week.
