If you are wondering where I am, I’m probably buried under mounds of adoption paperwork! Seriously, this adoption is going to become my full time job (and I promise not to ONLY write about it).
I knew that there would be a lot of paperwork involved, but frankly, I wasn’t expecting this much. If I can get Big Daddy on my masterful plan it will take us about a month just to fill it all out and then another month to chase around all the government agencies and companies that we need to cooperate to get our paperwork turned in on time. That said, I’m hoping to have it all completed by September 15th.
This past week we turned in our first packet, got fingerprinted, filled out all the releases for background checks required (county, city, state and national), and started ordering copies of the various documents required.
In some ways having so much to do helps right now. Each paper I complete brings us one step closer to realizing God’s plan for our family. That is a comfort when I get anxious.
Wish me luck with finishing everything by September 15th—- I’m probably going to need it!
