Home Study Initial Paperwork

So, it has been ridiculously quiet on this blog, not for lack of things to talk about or things that are festering (really festering is the most appropriate term for my state of mind often), but I was a woman on a mission. So while it isn’t in the mail, it will be tomorrow, our initial home study paperwork is complete.

Adoption Orientation Sheet – check
Agency Contract – check
Homestudy 8 page Application (this is so much longer than you’d think and I had to retype a lot of the actual form I had so many corrections) -check
Adoption Autobiography (10 pages of things you never knew about us. Oh wait, it is us so you probably did know.)-check
Financial Declaration (just what is our net worth? Assets & liabilities revealed)-check
Financial Statement -check
Fingerprints- check
Mug shot – that is going to have to wait
Medical -check
First of numerous large checks – check

CPS clearance requested – check
Six references contacted and letters requested – check (be kind darlings, be kind)
Accumulation of various official forms -started

Physical Home Study Appointment 1 & 2 made (if anyone wants to come over and help clean. Just saying. )

  1. Oh how I remember that checklist well, and the stress of getting each and every item completed. Adoption is not for the faint of heart but when all is said and done, it is worth it in the end.

    Well, you know you’ve got our moral support each and every step of the way. And we’ll be rejoicing the loudest when you’re matched and bringing your baby home!

  2. Wow! I’m so excited for you–love just the thought of you adding to your family. Fingers crossed, but I know you’ll sail through.

  3. You are over the hump…exciting! Good luck with the homestudy…so much easier than I made it out to be in my head.

  4. There’s no looking back now…the really large check ensures that! Good luck.

  5. By the way, your reference letter is now typed, signed, sealed, and ready to be dropped in the mail on Monday. I’m sending it with a prayer for a speedy match!
