We're getting somewhere! After being poked and prodded for our medical exams—which includes everything from a drug screen to an HIV test—and completing financial statements, background checks and filling out paperwork after paperwork, we have sent our social worker everything she needs to complete our home study! Hooray! We may have a draft in hand by Tuesday!
International adoption is a long process, and we're still just at the beginning. But this is our first big step! Now, on to our placement agency paperwork!
• Family/Adoption statements
• Financial statements
• TBI and local background check
• Mail last of home study documents to social worker!!!
Oh, and happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Derek is rather under the weather, so ours was spent at home. :-)
