Not sure if anyone will know any answers to this but i figured its worth a shot. The adoption unit in my state recieved my application. The cori came back and mine was perfect.But i live with my mother and she had a dui about 16 years ago.I DID write this on the application.Didnt want them to think i was hiding it.They said it puts her in a different category and because she is in the home they need to try to waive it before home inspection even starts.They also said its alot harder and more work for us to do.Like proof of treatment and stuff.She didnt need treatment.She is not an alcoholic.We were out at an xmas party and she had maybe 3 drinks.I am not saying it was ok it wasnt.But it was a fluke thing and she got pulled over.She could not drive for 3 months and had classes to go to which she completed.Does anyone know how this is going to impact an adoption? What the mean by more work on my part? And is it true they can waive things like that?
I don't know either. Nobody's perfect, though. If everyone got arrested for everything they'd ever done, there would be a LOT of arrests out there, ya' know? Like you said, it was a fluke. Yeah, it was stupid, but it was a long time ago. Surely a human being will look at the apps on a case by case basis before tossing them all out the window, right?
