How long did it take from your first inquiry to placement? (When in that time frame was the home study?)

How much was your home study?

You are going through DSS right? The homestudy should not cost anything.

We applied in December 2007 and were approved and received our first placement on July 1, 2008. I hear that is fairly quick around here. I was really motivated and got all our paperwork done quickly and both homestudies and our interviews were done during our 30 hours of classes we had to take (10 weeks of a 3 hour class each week).

We are going through DSS, yes. I have sent a basic inquiry through their site. Hoping for a reply soon.

Am I mistaken or did you mention in another thread that you were reimbursed for the fees? If this is the case, how much could we expect to need on hand until the state can get around to reimbursing us?

We will be reimbursed the adoption fees (like the court costs) but we haven't had to pay anything up front. Well, I take that back, I think we had to pay $5 a piece to get our fingerprints done.

From my understanding, the only cost's I will have for both adoptions I am in the process of finalizing, will be for new copies of the birth certificates. I didn't have any up front costs as of yet (I am just waiting on a date to finalize my adoptions).
Sorry can't help with the other questions. Right after I was licensed (was planning on waiting to go on to the active list) my niece and nephew came into care. So I haven't taken in any other kiddo's except family so far.
