I realize that some of you who follow my blog may be curious as to where we are in the adoption process. We spent the end of August through the beginning of November doing our Home Study. We had autobiographies to write, education to complete, and paperwork to gather. We had our first home study visit at the end of August, but did not have our next three until the end of October and the beginning of November. During the two months between visits, we worked on all of the things needed to complete our home study. Our last visit was several weeks ago and now we are waiting on our home study to be finalized. Our social worker has completed writing up the home study and has sent it to her supervisor for review, but they cannot complete the review and finalize it until the FBI sends our background check results to them. We sent our background check documents to the FBI in August, but it is taking a long time for the results to come back.
We are praying for a it to be finalized soon. As soon as it is finalized, we can apply for our i800a, which is the next step in the process. We can also begin applying for grants to assist us with the financial aspect of the adoption. Please pray that the home study will be finalized quickly. Please pray that we will go quickly through the next step in the process. And, please pray for the financial part of our process. Please pray that God will provide us with the finances that we need in order to complete our adoption.
Thank you for keeping our adoption in your prayers!
We cannot wait to bring home our next Super Hero!
