After a busy first official day of summer vacation, I just now sat down to go through today's mail. Making my way, in no great haste, to the bottom of the stack, I discovered a letter whose return address was from DCFS.
There were no other distinctive markings on the letter that I could find as I turned it over and examined its back. It felt light--definitely too light to be any of the missives sent out by the agency regarding policy change or updates. Not postmarked as a bulk mailing, my eyes darted across the address label reading, what appeared to be, our type-written name. Could this be a letter mailed specifically to us? Could this be the one we'd been waiting...
Oh, for Pete's sake, just tell them already!
Our homestudy, yes that homestudy, has been approved!
