Best email ever!

Just received this email from our application processor!!

"I wanted to let you know that your home study has been assigned. You will be hearing from one of our caseworkers, Kristin, within the next couple of weeks or so to schedule your home visit. Your caseworker here at Gladney, Jennifer, will also contact you within that same time frame to schedule your office interviews. Just send the few remaining items for your file to my attention.
Thanks so much!" - Vicki

More application papers sent and big fat check!

I sent every piece of paper I could possible send right now to the agency. Oh yeah, I had to include the first 25% too + 2000 for the homestudy/post-placement visits. Ridiculousness!!! Hopefully the homestudy will take place in October!! We are on our way, slowly but surely!!

Application incomplete

I got an email from the agency letting me know all the things we still need to submit - GRRRRR! It wasn't a horrible list, but it was long enough. I'm giving us two more weeks to get it all done. I don't want to put off completing the app any longer!

School is finally getting better for those of you know what's going on. I had a really great day today. Yah!

Application submitted

Brandt put our application in the mail today! Yay! Now, we just sit and wait for them to say, "You ppl seem OK. Give us a lot of money and wait another year." No. I'm just kidding, but there is some truth in it! We are waiting for the agency to let us know when we need to come back for our interview and at that time we will put down 25% + 1500 for the homestudy. Then they will come to our house to interview us to get to know us better, make sure we love each other, and talk about how we plan to raise our kids and stuff. Hopefully our homestudy will happen in October or definitely by November!

Wendy and Steve from Our Story: Our Journey to Adoption received "the call" that they had been link with a birthmom this past August (I believe). She's due in September. They had 5 weeks notice!! Their baby should be on its way very soon!!

Congrats to you both!
