And Again...The Journey Begins!

So, over the past week some information has come to light regarding the adoption process. Some good, some not so good. I will get into details perhaps when we go private on this blog...which will be soon, we'll see.

I have been in contact with the country that we are beginning our process with and we have been 'invited' to complete and send our homestudy to them.

So here is the plan:

The hiccup with unemployment and job change will hold us up for a hopefully we will begin our international homestudy in June or July. The social worker stated it will take around 3 months to complete it and get us a copy. That is fine because the country we are adopting from closes from June through September. That will be plenty of time for us to complete it and then send it.

In the meantime:

 File for our passports

We need to file a I600 or I600-A, I can't remember, with the USCIS.

Federal finger prints

Compiling all of our documents together, have necessary documents appostilled.

Compile documents into a dossier format.

Send dossier to country for translation and approval.

And in between all that, we need to choose a child or sibling set (or group).

Our hope and prayer is to have a child/children in our house by this time next year...whether it is the set of twins that brought us this far, and it can be, or a little girl with DS...we really do want add to our family!

I am planning on going private soon, so if you are interested in following along, please let me know so I can send you an invite!

God Bless!
