Individual Interview Done

Well the interview didn't take quite three hours, but it was pretty close. :) I can't really share too much about it because Ryan still has to do his and she wants him to come into his meeting fresh, without being swayed by my answers. Makes sense. What I can tell you is that we dove into lots of aspect of my life including family, marriage, infertility and miscarriage. It went really well, and there weren't really any surprises. Most, if not all, of the topics had been touched on in either a survey or my autobiography. But talking it all out with her was really nice, and almost like a bonding experience as well. I feel like she really knows me and wants to help us through this adoption process. :)

I was sent a list of guidelines and instructions for our profile book last week. At that point I was already almost done with ours. ::blush:: Impatient? Overachiever? Psycho? I donno, call me what you will. lol. Anyway, I was hoping that what I had already put together would work, so I asked Anita to look over it with me and see if there was anything I should change. She loved it!! She said it was very well put together, and furthermore it was a unique style. She hadn't seen one quite like ours before. ::beams:: 
Her only recommendation was to trim out some of the wording, which I am more than happy to do! I didn't really want a whole lot of text anyway, but I felt like I might need more after I saw the instructions. So I have a couple pictures to add in, and then I will be ready to post it here so you can all see what the expectant mothers will be looking at. :)

  5. I think making our profile book was one of the most stressful parts of the process for me, and definitely the most time consuming. Good for you for getting it finished early!
