I just received an email from our placing agency that we’ve been accepted into their program.  I know that there was no reason for them NOT to accept us but the way things sometimes work, you never know ! 🙂

Next they send us an agreement which we send back with the initial payments.  After it taking 4 months to get our home study done, I have to wrap my head around the fact that our placing agency is more efficient and on the ball.  That means that my initial estimates for payment are going to be a month + off so I’m going to have to either sit on some forms or do a bit of juggling.

Then they give us all of the information on how to create our dossier. That gets sent back with the last round of large payments that we have to pay until we receive a referral – which gives us a few years probably…..

Somewhere in there we fill out the I-800A, the US government’s problematic book of a form.  So there is a lot of financial juggling to do and a lot more paperwork coming our way.

AND I’m probably going to take a stab at applying for some adoption grants.

But in the meantime, we’re now officially signed with an adoption agency and that feels quite good!
