Our home study paperwork is done!
Well, it is lacking one item…the neighbor reference.
We’ve been in our house for over 2 years now, however, we only know our neighbors by name. We probably wouldn’t say ‘hi’ to them if we saw them in a store or restaurant. We just mostly wave and nod when we see them outside. We have no idea how to approach them (any of them) to fill out the neighbor reference form for our home study.
Are we horrible people for not getting to know our neighbors better? It’s not like they’ve tried to get to know us either. And I have nothing against them, we just keep to ourselves and so do they.
How do we go about re-introducing ourselves in a manner in which we can ask for this favor-this HUGE favor- so that it won’t seem like we are just being polite to get a good reference from them?
