(I stole this idea from another blog I read!)
The timeline to building our family–
September 2006– First meeting with adoption agency
December 2006– Approved and waiting!
January 2007– Chosen!
March 2007– Little Scribbler is born and placed in our family!
November 2008– Little Scribbler’s adoption is finalized– she is legally ours forever and always!
February 2010– We begin homestudy process for NextKid
June 2010– Still in the homestudy process, The Auditor is offered another job in a different state.
July 2010– Scribblers relocate from New York to Maryland!
November 2010– Faithful Scribbler has many conversations with many yucky adoption agencies in the Baltimore-Washington area.
December 2010– Faithful Scribbler has a WONDERFUL conversation with Catholic Charities. FS and The Auditor attend information session and file formal application
Febraury 2010– Second meeting with Catholic Charities. Second round of paperwork complete!
March 2010– Third round of paperwork in process.
This will keep those of you who have been asking up to date with our general timeline. From what we understand, we should be approved and waiting by May or June, at which point we will begin applying for grants and loans to cover placement fees for NextKid.
Our crib is already set up and we’re ready to go! NextKid– HERE WE COME!
