Homestudy visit and MISS friends!!

Well today Brian and I had our first homestudy visit in Evergreen. Everything went exceptionally well!!! We were both relieved and excited as we start our journey. She asked us basic questions about our lives and our backgrounds, how we grew up and how was our childhood. We had a good long talk and got alot accomplished. Our next meeting is next Wednesday and we are both looking forward to accomplishing another milestone in our journey.

She did ask us questions that we would have never thought of. Even when I was pregnant with Grace I didn't give a thought about who would raise her if something happened to us. They want us to plan for the child's life and think through questions that most would not think about. Brian and I looked at each other and said it had never occured to us to even question. I think that the homestudy will be good for us to help us work through the what ifs??

On a different note-- I went to my MISS group tonight and I just love all of my friends who have gone through a loss and just get it. I can feel at ease and be myself without worrying what I can and can not say. A bunch of new parents were there and that just plain sucks!!! I'm glad that there is a group so that we can meet others and know that we are not going crazy but I just wish it never had to exist. I just don't know what I would do without you all. All of you are very amazing women and I cherish the friendships that I have with each and every one of you!!!
