Today we had our office appointment with Adoption Support Center. It took about two hours. We signed some paperwork and answered a bunch of questions about our relationship with our parents, grandparents, siblings, each other and our kids. And we also had to describe ourselves. That was really hard! Trying to describe ourselves isn't the easiest thing to do. We helped each other out.
We talked to the lady from the bank today and she broke the news to us that we weren't approved for the amount that we thought we were. It covered our first payment to AGCI, so that worked out great. I know that when we are trying to do what God wants us to do Satan tries to intervene. I also know that God doesn't want us to solely rely on this line of credit. He wants us to rely on Him! and we are going to. He is going to do amazing things.
We also sent in our orientation packet and first payment to AGCI. I was so excited to finally send it in!
Our next step is to have an in home visit for the home study. We also complete our dossier. We will receive all of the dossier paperwork from AGCI after they get our orientation packet, which will be tomorrow. Next week we have to go to the police station and get fingerprinted and get background checks. We also have to take a 10 hour course online. Lots and lots of stuff to do.
We never knew how much "stuff" you had to do when you are going through an adoption, but wow it is a lot. But totally worth it! We are so excited! Just to think that our baby probably has been conceived is amazing! oh we cant wait!
