So we still have not received the email with our assigned social worker, but we did get an invitation in the mail today for the 2 day seminar that we have to attend as part of our requirement for acceptance. We had thought that we would not get this invitation until after our home study, but apparently, completion of our interviews prior to is not imperative. The seminar will be July 30th and 31st. It is during this time that we will participate in discussions with the Agency Director and a social worker, and group exercises with other prospective adoptive couples, as well as have the opportunity to ask questions to a panel of birth parents, adoptive parents, and adopted children who are all connected through Buckner. We are really excited about having a tangible date to look forward to, as it has been driving us nearly mad waiting for a response from the agency on our application!


  1. umm, if it's June 30-31 you've got a couple of problems... :)

  2. Congrats! That is great news:)

  3. We are so excited for you! Know we continue to keep you in our daily thoughts and prayers as you prepare for this new chapter in your lives! In HIM--The Akemans
