Today was my final home study visit. If you have been reading my blog, you know I have been working really hard to get ready for this visit.
It was a two hour visit. The first hour was questions about how I would parent, parenting techniques, etc. I was asked a bunch of questions from a list about my house. Did I put the locks on my cabinets, do I have one room per child, does the room have a closet, etc.
Then we walked around and checked that I have locks, a fire extinguisher, carbon monoxide detector, smoke alarm, etc. She made sure the pond was filled in with sand. Everything checked out but she forgot to tell me about the screens. I didn't install the screens on my windows. I have them but the lock things that hold the screens on the window broke off and I have to replace them. I have a few weeks to put the screens on and send her a photo and she will accept it. Meanwhile I have passed the inspection. Yay!
It will take a few weeks (meaning the end of December) to write the home study report and then I move forward to the next step. It will be a number of weeks of relaxation before things get going again. So I can plan for the holidays.
This is a happy day! Thanks to everyone who helped me.
