First Social Worker Visit

Yesterday we had our first social worker visit.  For those who are not up on the South Korean adoption process, after the baby is placed with a family, there must be at least 3 home visits over a 6 month period.  The social worker and the Children’s Bridge need to submit reports on the baby’s progress at 2, 4, and 6 month intervals.  At the end of the 6 months a R.O.A.C.H. report (Report on the Adjustment of the Child in the Home) is submitted to Korea and after that a court hearing will be held when Alex becomes an official member of our family.  At least that is how I think it goes. 

So yesterday was the first visit and it was not as stressful as I had anticipated.  Our SW focused on Alex and his progress – his communication, motor skills, attachment etc and he passed with flying colours!  Yeah Alex!  Next visit will be just after his first birthday in May.

  1. I’m glad the visit went well. We’re about to start ours too, but for our adoption we have to do one visit per month for six months. It’s crazy.

    Love his big, round cheeks!!
