We have just transitioned from Infertility treatments to pursuing a child through foster/adoption programs. We met with a rep from an local agency last night who interviewed us at our home. This was an introductory meeting and we convinced ourselves that she just wanted to make sure we didnt have a third eye and knives hanging from the ceiling. D and I really liked her and felt we made a great impression. In many ways, it felt like we were preparing for a blind date and job interview all at the same time. Our mental check list went a little something like this
Be funny but not silly.
Show some smarts but don’t be obnoxious.
Reflect confidence but do not brag.
I could go on, really.
We have several more steps before we will know that we have been accepted. My goal this coming week will be to schedule the 4 hour interview with the Fost/Adopt counselor and start preparing a room for the child that is out there waiting for us
