Our HS interviews were long like that too ... sw asked about things like:

  • childhood

  • our parents and siblings then and now

  • educational experience

  • how DH & I met/courtship

  • our marriage

  • our jobs

  • our home

  • our theories on discipline

  • our attitudes towards adoption

  • our infertility process

Basically, it was almost like being interviewed by someone who was going to write a biography on us.

Good luck! I bet they will ask everything under the sun like: When do you plan to tell your child they are adopted, how do you cope with stress and so on. I bet it will go great!

We want to start our home study after the holidays in January. How long will the completed home study be valid for? 12 months or 2 years? Does it vary from state to state? (we are in WA)

Thanks, Lyn
