This past Thursday, I had my second home study visit. After talking for two hours the last time, I had no idea what to expect for this one. It was shorter then the last one and a lot more laid back. Cindy, my home study lady, gave me lot of resources for adoption and for after the adoption. I gave her some financial forms and then we talked about different adoption stories. We talked a little more about when I would need a will. Who would have thought I would need one so soon? I guess it's something I have taken for granted but when I have a child, I will need to make sure they are taken care of if something happens to me. That means I need to start thinking about who I will choose for a guardian for my child, just in case. Hard decisions ahead!
Here is the controversial part of the meeting. Cindy tells me that I will need to spend the first three weeks by myself with the baby. Mothers have 9 months to bond with their baby and I need to make sure I have that bonding time. So, I went ahead and told my mother this to prepare her. Believe me this does not go over well. I will do some more research on this but was wondering what others thought. Any comments or thoughts?
