Meanwhile, I came back to work to a report that had been due the previous week, the end of the fiscal year project plan scramble, and a trip to AZ thrown in for good measure. Project plans are now in place for next year, the trip went well, and I'm currently mired in report writing as fast as I can to meet deadlines. I could have delayed my review, but it would have only extended the agony. Better to get this thing off my plate ASAP.
We completed our first post-placement meeting/inspection on Tuesday. It went well as to be expected, but I am seriously sick of the process. We've been discussing adding to our family, and we would have to start the next homestudy soon after the finalization. (Because it will probably take much longer to be matched) The thought of jumping through all these hoops again is daunting.
