COFFEE WITH THE SOCIAL WORKER

I just finished getting all the paperwork done again for China (for those that don't know...It's all expiring because it's taking so long) and met with our social worker this morning. We haven't seen her since October, 2005. Needless to say, Ian doesn't remember her coming to the house before. I explained to him this morning that we were meeting her at a restaurant. I told him that she is a lady that writes a letter about us and tells China if we would be good parents for Ava or not.

The social worker and I spent about an hour going over the paperwork this morning. I even admitted that I have gained weight when we got to that question. Sigh. Ian was busy coloring and eating during most of the meeting. At one point, I looked over at him and he looked like he was going to cry. I asked him if he was alright (I thought maybe he had bit his tongue or something) and he said he was. After the social worker had left, Ian whispered to me...."How did we do?" He wants his little sister SO badly and wanted to make a good impression! I asked him why he looked like he was going to cry during the meeting. Ian said, "I was so scared that she wouldn't let Ava come and live with us!" I have the most WONDERFUL and AMAZING little boy!
