Home Study

I called Adoptions & Beyond today to start our home study. They are a partner agency to WACAP and a few other agencies so they will do our home study here because those agencies are not in our state. They will be mailing a paperwork packet to the social worker who will then call us to set up our first appointment to go over the packet. We will work on gathering all documents for the paperwork packet, as well as medical physicals for all of us. Once that is complete we mail it back to the agency with our fee and they set up an appointment to come out to the house. A few weeks of typing and approvals and we should have a final copy about 6 weeks later.

We did it!

We had the application to WACAP's waiting children program filled out...twice. The first application was thrown away after 2 months of sitting on the counter and the second application was filled out, and in an envelope for 3 weeks before I finally placed it in the mailbox yesterday. A check dated in November, an application dated in December and finally placed in the mail Jan. 6, 2009.
