We were done. We were sure of it. Everything was in. The home study report will be finalized this week or next. All the paperwork was submitted. We sent a CD of photos of everything imaginable in to the placement agency.
What do I discover when I get my e-mail today?
A request for 16 more photos!
We already sent in 60!
This is getting ridiculous.
It doesn't help that the samples of the additional types of photos they need are exactly the kind of photos we typically mock because they're so cheesy and so posed. I keep expecting to see one where someone actually went in and used Photoshop to add a silvery, sparkly starburst that just shouts gleam! to these people's teeth. I'm feeling like we should just go to the local Target, distract the employees, and abscond with all the fake photo inserts of picture-perfect couples that they stick in picture frames..
It looks like all family members will be dragooned into serving as photographers over the Thanksgiving holidays. Gee...that will be fun.
I think I'm just tired and cranky. Good practice for when Plus One keeps me awake all night, I guess.
