The DH & I were emailed the draft of our homestudy yesterday & in our social worker's defense, I can only imagine how many of these reports they have to put together. I cannot blame them for using the old copy & pasting method when it comes to changing things & writing 'new' reports....however, I must admit, some of the typos were pretty funny & gave us a good laugh.
First when it got to the section about my BIL, it stated he was single & married with no kids. He is one busy dude!! Then we got down a bit further to find my brother's name had completely changed to something not even close to his real name. But the kicker...when we reached the section that spoke about how we knew it would be different raising a child of Colombian decent & how we plan on honoring their ethnicity, etc..it then went on to say, we could do this well as we were both Chinese!! I had to reread that one a few time...we know a lot about Colombian culture because we are Chinese?! I didn't know I was Chinese & I sure didn't know it helped me know about LP's culture!
Ahh...what a good laugh we got out of that. Both Mr PCOSChick & myself learned something new about ourselves today & here this entire time we thought we were Caucasian!
