I'd like to start off by saying I'm pissed that we have to do this at all for us to be a "legal" family. We procrastinated the adoption for a long, long time. Partially because we are already legally married and Chicken is listed on the birth certificate, but mostly because we hired a lawyer that has made so many mistakes it's ridiculous. She's so careless I have no idea how she gets through the day.
We've finally gotten to the home study portion of the adoption which means we're almost done! Last week the social worker came over and spent 2 hours with us. Good God. I can't even believe that she wanted our entire life stories from BIRTH to present. WTF?!
Now you know that I am not really a private person, but I was pissed that we had to go through all of these questions--to be so judged.
Today, I get an email from the social worker and I must say....I'm a bit in disbelief.
These questions...is this NORMAL for a home study?? Did anyone else have to go through all of this??
And the kicker? The social worker is a pregnant lesbian I've previously met on several occasions. Someone else is going to be coming to her house and doing the same damn thing.
It's so messed up on so many levels.
