Home Study Review

I received notice yesterday that our home study has been reviewed and approved! Yay!  We have to meet one more time with our social worker, as per the requirements of China, then we are able to pick up our notarized copies of the home study.

After this, we will file our USCIS paperwork regarding notifying the government of our plans to adopt and getting approval to adopt and to bring our internationally adopted child into the U.S. (This requires sending a copy of our home study to the CIS and we have to get fingerprinted).

Then, we will send our whole dossier to Great Wall.  Sorry if I am repeating.  I am trying to keep myself organized as to what the next step is.  So much paperwork!  One thing is dependent on another.  The Home Study is a big lynch pin in this process, so I am glad to finally get word that it is approved!

On another note, thanks Mom for the Asian scrapbooking supplies.  I am putting together a scrapbook for our new son.  I am starting it back in December when we started the process and am journaling our thoughts and our feelings through this process.  Thank you to all who have participated in this process, we appreciate your love and support. 

Hopefully, in the coming days, more news will follow.

    Awesome news! So much closer to bringing your son home to his forever family!

    Glad you got the stuff OK and can use it. I got the quilt material in and it is even prettier in person. I want to embroider the corner of it with his name and the date of his Gotcha Day. Is Gotcha Day the day you pick him up or the day the judge signs the papers?

    Vivian, Nanny did not forget you, love. A shirt should arrive at your house this week that I ordered for you. It says Ni Hao and has a picture of a girl on it. I know you know what that means, and I thought you might like to take it to China to wear when you see your new brother.
