    Default Adoption Meeting Update

    We had our adoption meeting tonight and it went well. Here is the post from my blog.

    Our Adoption Orientation went very well tonight. One of the reasons we weren't very sure of domestic infant adoption was because of the risk. This agency put our fears at ease with how they handle adoptions. If they know a birthmom's(BM) intentions aren't sincere then they turn her down for adoption services. There will still be times when after birth the BM changes her mind and in those situations it can't be helped.

    We covered all the expenses and the "major" expenses are split into lump sums at match, placement and before finalization. Which is good. They also monitor very closely the BM's expenses. If she says she needs her electric bill paid they write a check to the electric company not the BM. Also they try to use all the community resources available to the BM before using the escrow money.

    They only handle at most 15 families. They don't have a time frame either...they said it could be as soon as a few days or 3 years. It all depends on the BM's they counsel and our "criteria".

    The next step is the application meeting. We filled out a preliminary info sheet tonight. In a couple weeks the social worker (SW) will call us to set up this meeting. After that meeting we start the homestudy process. We'll then complete two seperate individual meetings with the SW and one home visit. After our homestudy is approved we will be a profile waiting family. They say it will take about 3 months to get through the homestudy. But we are looking at several weeks before we start the homestudy.

    Glad that things sound so good Kebrina. I know that this can be a roller coaster of emotions and I will pray that God provides you some much needed patience to get through His will for you guys.
