Getting Closer

Hi everyone. We have been so busy over the last few weeks! It seems like everything is moving right along. We got our fingerprints scanned and put in the mail. We filled out our long and lengthy questionnaire and gave it, along with some more paperwork to our social worker. We had our medical evaluation done last week, and we had our home study done yesterday. Whew, what a relief it is to have all of that over and done. We have a little bit more paperwork to do on our finances, but hopefully that will be it for a while. As far as we know, once all paperwork (medical evaluation, background check, finances, etc.) is filled out and received by the adoption agency's main office in Montgomery, our home study will be reviewed along with all of our information. They will then determine if we will be approved for adoption. In the meantime, we will be gathering pictures for our portfolio and trying to be patient.
We only have one more class left! It's hard to believe that the end of the 10 week course is almost here. We have learned so much and made some life long friends. We will keep everyone posted on our progress. Love y'all!

The Latest

Hey everyone! It's been a few weeks since we last posted. We have been so busy lately with home improvements and homework and our classes. We finally have a few moments to sit down and inform everyone of our progress. So far, there is not much to tell. We had our fifth class yesterday. We are learning so much. We really do enjoy the classes and have made a lot of friends. Last week we received our adoption packet that consists of a VERY lengthy and detailed questionnaire. Each of us will have to fill that out and turn it in before the one on one interviews with our social worker. So, once we do that, we will schedule our home study. Also in the packet were our fingerprint cards and our medical evaluation forms. We hope to go sometime this week and have our fingerprints scanned so we can go ahead and get those in the mail. We were told that the background check usually takes quite a while to come back. As for the medical evaluation, we will try and make our appointments for the next week or so. We will keep everyone updated. Please continue to pray for us! Don't forget to check out our coffee website!! We love y'all!!
