Another Adoption Saturday

After I talked to the agency last week, I started thinking about them not having our BCI checks yet. Last year I had called the place that completes the check to check on the status of ours for our teaching licenses, so I did that again Wednesday for our new checks. Sure enough they said that they had sent them to our agency on 2.26.10. In order to get new copies sent, the agency had to call. That was Wednesday so I am hopeful that they get them in the mail soon.

Today was our networking workshop. It was fantastic! We left with a ton of great ideas.

It was great to see some of the same couples from class and meet a few new couples going through this journey also.

We also had the opportunity to meet the case aid, face to face, that we had been in contact with. She told me to call early next week to check on the status of our paperwork. I am hoping that they call me first! I am so ready to get things started with our homestudy interviews.

Sounds like things are really moving right along. Following your journey has been very enlightening. I really had no idea there was so much involved in adoption!

Lovin' the new background, by the way!
