I love rollercoasters...but not this one.

WOW! It has definitely been a crazy few weeks. But, I finally got a car! I am SO incredibly happy to have that whole ordeal over with. I was so anxious to have the whole wreck behind me that I bought my car on Friday. At 9am. In the snow. And let me tell ya, car shopping is NOT fun when you HAVE to have a car. Side note: isn't it funny how here in America, if our every day luxuries are shaken up, we can't seem to function???
So, what did I get? I got a 2010 Nissan Rogue....and I love love love it! I was going to buy used, but, long story short, I got the brand new one WITH a sunroof and bose stereo for about $1,000 more than the used one :) So I'm happy with that.
Now, onto more exciting things. We go to our orientation this Friday! (I think I may have mentioned that before...I can't help it!) I am extremely excited! But I am also extremely nervous. When you first decide to adopt, the majority of feelings are excitement. But, as you begin to prepare for the homestudy, other feelings set in. Here are some random thoughts I've had creeping into my mind.
  • What if they don't like us?
  • Are we "perfect" enough? How "perfect" do they expect us to be?
  • Should I be blatantly honest, or only tell them what they "need" to know?
  • What do I do to prepare for the home study visit?
  • Will they think we aren't suitable because Brandon has struggled with depression?

Some are silly, I know. But I know they are going to pick apart every inch of our lives, and that scares me. We aren't perfect, and for some reason, I feel the need to be for this. Yikes! Wish us luck!
