It doesn't really matter, but it is easiest to get them to come out during your MAPP classes simply because you see them every week.
We had to have two homestudys. The first involved our extensive interviews. The second was basically a recheck to be sure we had everything done and all the paperwork turned in and such. At the second homestudy our worker told us about Lil Buddy and he moved in about 2 weeks later (after a short transition time). They'll rush you through if they have a child who they want you to take.
That relieves me so much! I have been having contact back and forth with Dakota's SW and she said there are a lot of families interested in him but have to weed out the ones that aren't experienced with dev. delays and conditions he has. She feels we would be good candidates, but still have to search for the BEST home. They are being extremely cautious because he's had dozens of failed placements. I hope my comment stands out above everyone else, "We do not care if he changes, if he does that's wonderful, if not we will love him the same." We understand that some mental disabilities are nearly impossible to change and reguardless of whether he gets better or worse we'd love him just the same. This seems to be something a lot of the families interested in him do not understand. Hubby has an autistic uncle that is an EXTREME case. So we are experienced and know what to expect. His SW must really like us though, because she said if for any reason he's adopted to another family she is and will still be searching for the perfect child for our home. I love my workers
