Quick adoption progress update

I’m up to my eyeballs in craft fair preparation – it’s not until April 11th but I am determined for once not to have a last minute freak out about what I could have made – but I wanted to just write down for posterity how the adoption process is chugging along. We went to the doctor finally nearly 2 weeks ago with our medical forms and so they should have been sent in by now. I’ll have to follow that up this week because you never can tell with doctors. Our police check must have gone ok too because our referees finally got their forms. My mum is one and has filled out her forms and they’ll be sent off tomorrow. Our other referee did a no-show on us today 😦 but her reference will hopefully be sent in to Adoption Services all filled out by the end of this week. And that is the last part of the first paperwork! After that (assuming the references are all good) we can expect our invitations to the Education and Preperation course in May!

Long story short….in a (roughly) 11 step process – step 9 is being chosen by birth parents – we are just finishing step 3. While the waiting may be long and agonising and some steps are longer than others it’s nice to know that we are steadily getting closer to our dream.Yay!!
