We have our adoption application filled out and ready to turn in! We had to provide the names of 4 people to use as references, and I called 3 or the 4 during the week to make sure it was okay to use them and to let them know that they would receive a letter in the mail and they'll have to respond to the request. And Rob still needs to contact the other person on our list, but we know that one will be not be a problem at all.
So, our next step is the Home Study classes, which will be daytime classes, February 17th & 28th from 10am-4pm. In this next step, we will get more involved in the adoption process and begin the groundwork in getting (hopefully) approved and eventually in circulation for adoption of our own little angel. As I understand it, thanks to my friend Sarah :), we're just at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to paperwork and "homework". Lots to do still...it will be a long road, but so worth it in the end!
