I checked the mail this morning. Our home study is in my hands! Yay! Steven is sitting on the laptop right now wading through the 16 page I-800 USCIS Application that we have to send a home study with in order to be approved by the US government to adopt from a Hague Country and to travel and pick up our child. After we submit it, it takes about 30-45 days for them to return a favorable determination and to send us to get fingerprinted.
I am preparing, right now, a stack of papers to send to the Secretary of State for certification. I hope to Fedex those out on Monday! We are about a month behind on where I wanted to be due to the cold weather, our busy schedules and trying to get that fourth home study meeting in. But, all things happen in due time. I don’t want to rush anything and I know all things happen for a reason.
So…there is your quick update…I am off to prepare paperwork!
