The most common question we get from people is, “Well, how much longer?” This question doesn’t bother me at all. We genuinely appreciate the interest.
When we explain the process to people, they are often surprised to hear about all of the steps and the amount of paperwork. It is clear to us that we are called to grow our family through adoption. Although there are times when the idea of the wait becomes discouraging, I am amazed at how at peace B and I are with this process. This process, I think, helps you really decide if you want to be parents. And, we absolutely want to be.
We are almost finished with 30 hours of training for our adoption. It has all been so good, so worthwhile, and so moving.
So, if you want a graphic of the process, look at the one below. We are currently meeting with a wonderful social worker to do our homestudy. It will likely be finished in March sometime.
