Finally our home study is over. We have completed all the paperwork, training, and the home visit. It feels like we are actually making progress now. We have our Dossier Packet requirements in hand and are taking our I-600a and the $650 to San Bernardino to get approved through immigration to adopt out of the country.
The home visit went smooth and was not as stressful as we imagined. Eleanor, or social worker, talked to the kids about the adoption, at least as much as she could to 7, 4, and 3 year olds. It only took an hour or so. She told us the purpose of the international adoption home visit is to make sure the child has a place to sleep, and the home is safe. She said if it was a domestic adoption there would have been a long checklist to go through and would have taken much longer.
Well off to gather the Dossier paperwork. Keep praying for us.
