In what seemed like forever, we finally have our final state inspection scheduled for 2-23 - Frank's b-day! What a great birthday present.
This is the last step before we are licensed for foster care / adoption.
And ------- once this inspection is done, it should only take a few days to actually be licensed.
We can get a placement anytime after we are licensed. So, this is really happening.
OMG, I am super excited!!!!!
This last inspection will be very detailed, but I know we are ready for it. The inspector seems like a great woman, super nice on the phone. But, I am sure I will be a nervous wreck until then. Our house is always tidy (AKA - home inspection ready lol); but I will make sure it is super tidy. A bunch of people have suggested to not make your house perfect - because the inspector will see that as an issue. I guess they think you might freak out if there are messy kids in the house.
It is not like I will not clean my house, or leave things out on purpose, but I am not gonna stress out if my house is not super clean. Guess what, people live here, so if there is mail on the counter, or clothes in the laundry room, it is really not a big deal.
Probably the ONE thing I will do that I would not normally do is make my bed. Yup, you read that right - on most days, the bed is unmade....could I fail for that, probably not, but I know she will be in my room, so the bed will be made lol
I of course will keep this blog updated, but, PLEASE send "good final inspection" vibes my way!
