Here is where we are at in the adoption process.
Two Applications mailed-in and accepted
One agency fee paid.
Thus far we have completed the following for our HomeStudy:
- Two couple interviews
- One individual interview
- Financial Report
- Copy of last years tax return
- Fire Evacuation Plan
- Employee Reference letter
- FBI and State Police clearances via Fingerprinting
- Personal references have been sent out
- CPR Training- (tomorrow night)
We’re making progress. Still lots to do. And to think when we had our boys in a hospital, they simply handed us our children two days after I had them, wheeled me down to our car, and said “good luck”.
No backround checks, no fingerprinting, no CPR classes, no determining our fitness to parent. Just a smile and friendly goodbye by the hospital staff.
This is a very different journey. But SO worth the effort. With each piece of paper we sign and hand-in to our dear social worker we are one step closer to meeting our daughter.
Onward we go. 🙂
