2 Down 2 to Go

Tuesday night we attended our 2nd homestudy education class. This class was held across the street from our agency in a hotel ballroom. A local adoption group, connected with our agency, hosts guest speakers on adoption several times throughout the year (along with the family oriented events they host). We are required 3 hours of education in the area of transcultural education and it just so happened that the adoption group had invited a guest speaker to discuss this very topic. The two hours flew by. The speaker was great! She had loads of good ideas and personal experience to back them up.

I can’t wait until DH and I get to join the adoption group. I think that it will be a good support system for us in the future.

What have we gotten done:
- Marriage license and insurance cards/verification copied
- Scheduled our physicals
- Started filling out our medical background forms
- We were fingerprinted today

Important dates coming up:
- 2.27.10 – 3rd Homestudy education class
- 3.6.10 – Physicals
- 3.6.10 – Our goal date to send out our paperwork from the ‘big’ packet
- 3.13.10 – 4th/Last Homestudy education class

What we need to be doing:
- Call about fire inspection and get things prepared by 3.6.10
- Fill out autobiography form (19 questions long) by 3.6.10
- Start thinking about profile and pick up supplies by ASAP

We are very close to you in our adoption process! I'm glad I stumbled upon your blog! We have our classes condensed because we are in a rural town, so they are tonight and tomorrow and then we're done! I am so excited...and nervous:). Good luck and I'll keep an eye on your journey:).

Hi! I have been reading your blog for awhile now and me and my husband are looking into adoption as a way to start our family since we both have fertility issues.

I was wondering what agency you are using? There are so many agencies out there but it is hard to distinguish between the good and the bad ones.

Thank you so much!
