The final steps in our adoption process are these post adoption reports. They require a brief report from our social worker at six months and one year post adoption. We finally were able to have our social worker over a few weeks ago to finish our six month report. Our social worker for Juliana's adoption is an older gentleman who has recently had quite a few health problems. For this and many, many other reasons, we have a new social worker for Joseph's adoption.
Now the report is written (I have to type it up for him as he has no computer and his typist, yes typist, retired). All that is needed are some pictures to attach to the report. The hold up with the pictures has been getting one with just dh, Juliana, and me. We have lots of family pictures, several of Juliana alone, and tons of her with her sisters, but none with just the three of us. We had to employ Banana to get one of us which was no easy feat.
Now that we have that picture, I just had to identify three or four more pictures that sum up Juliana's first six months with our family. It wasn't easy to narrow it down. How did I do? I think many of these pictures have been previously posted as it is usually my favorites that make their way to the blog.
