Yes, yes, please share! Since I won't be adopting any more, I like to live vicariously through those of you who are!

I updated in my question about pestering CM thread

we've taken our classes, completed our home study packet and after a 3 + week wait, we have a stop by on wednesday to go over our paperwork w/the CM. though she thinks she has everything she needs from it. so hoping to get the home visit phase done and all the paperwork done. a friend did let me know that they recieved a questionairre about us so I know things are being processed.

That's great! I know the wait between steps can be frustrating, but hang in there!

Edited for horrific grammar.

thanks Marla. that is quite true, very frustrating the wait. I guess there was an article about there being more kids needing foster homes this year than last. I've got the house looking good so, hoping all goes well tomorrow.

I can't wait to hear about how it goes for you!!

DH and I still have to take the classes in January but we've been told that we'll have the dates by the end of the week.

Good Luck to everyone!

I know the doctor filled out her questionarre today and they are getting it in the mail, they have one of the references back and Iknow one other friend is getting it out asap. the only glitch is one reference said they never received anything. so I'm getting her updated address and will have ot email the CM about it I guess. as soon as I get these last things done, the sooner in jan I can have the home inspection done.

plus

wed 17th Dec.-Done. One medical check left, 2 papers to fill out, 3 references to get turned in and a home inspection in Jan 09 left to do. Seeking approval for 3 fks/foster to adopt. also following that, the next adoption meeting after that, our file will be reviewed and if approved, certificate sent and search for a match done

thank you! when we started we thought one additional child, then as I've read and things, I told dh, the likelyhood of a 4-6 yr old having a sibling is probably high so we decided on 2 and now w/our sq footage and # of kids in the house already, we can have 3 fks here and next thing we knew, thats what we are down for. dh was like 8 kids, but then I reminded him, that we have a few older kids and we weren't going for babies or toddlers and he seemed to adjust to that. plus, we do feel like this is a good things. I think by the time we are ready, we'll just be getting the inspection scheduled in jan and that might not happen til february. then however long it takes to get approval from there. the hurry up and wait and slow to get things done is frustrating sometimes, but I think ultimately the timing will work out really well. esp since we think we'll be able to get the 12 passanger van in march. I'm just looking forward to fostering and eventually adopting. I'm ready for the paperwork part to be done.
