Did you have to write your life story before adopting? I am thinking this is one of those social services things and not private adoption, but I wasn't sure.

I have been writing on this for DAYS!! It is SO in depth! It is exhausting to relive a lot of it too. But I'm almost done.

In other news, I've finished our adoption paperwork except our physicals. We have appointments for that, just haven't had them done. I finished our pictures and such for the adoption. I've got two more pages to do in our foster scrapbook (I just need to print a few more pictures).

We only have two more classes. Tonight is our Panel Night where we will get to spend some time asking questions to different folks like a foster child who aged out of the system, an adoptive family, a foster family, a judge, a counselor, etc. So that is something I'm really looking forward to. Any particular questions you can recommend that I ask to any of these folks?

I just can't believe we're so close! We could get our license be the end of the summer and have placements!!

Thank you to AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggie!

Wow! You are getting so close! I didn't have to write anything like that (thank goodness, I'm not much of a writer) I'm excited for you!

Yep, we had to write our autobiographies (which was pretty much our life story) and I thought it was a total beating! It took me several days to get it done, too.

Congrats again on being so close to the finish line!!
