The Reality of Adoption

Hi everyone! Sorry it’s been a little quiet on our end…I promise to make our updates more frequent from here on out! Truth is, we’ve had our heads down, pushing forward with the seemingly never-ending pile of paperwork. I want this blog to be completely open and honest so that you can get a good idea of what international adoption looks like. But sometimes it’s hard to explain the ins and outs of the applications, forms, trainings, notaries, background checks, and every tedious detail that we’re navigating. But I’m going to try my best to give you a glimpse into this process! (without completely boring you)

SO…in our last post, I talked about how we were working towards finishing our home study. I’m pleased to announce that as of last week it is officially completed! This is a huge milestone because many forms and applications we are working on now require a completed home study. We ran into a few hiccups towards the end, which prolonged the process, but we are super thankful for our social worker and adoption agency who are making sure every tiny detail of our paperwork is perfect. We would rather take a little more time now making sure everything is right than hurrying through it and having problems months down the road.

I mentioned in our last post that once our home study was completed, we would get our names put in the database to be matched with our daughter. This is true. And a little untrue. Yes, the next step is getting matched through the database, but just like everything else with the adoption, it’s a process. In order to get our names put in we had to complete additional required paperwork, which we finished last week. Now we are waiting for our adoption agency to upload our information into the database. There is only room for 100 adoptive families per month (seeking to adopt from India) to be uploaded. Our agency has been having some issues accessing the site to put our information in, so we’re currently waiting to see if the database is having some sort of malfunction or if capacity has been reached this month. If capacity has been reached already this month, we will have to wait until April 1 to be put into the database.

We’re using this time of waiting to…you guessed it…complete more paperwork. Our dossier (which gets sent to India for them to approve us) is a high priority now along with getting our background checks from the Department of Homeland Security

I know, I know. So many steps. So much waiting. So many unexpected twists and turns. I’d be lying if I said it’s been easy. We are constantly reminding each other that God has this whole thing planned out. He knows the timeline. He knows our daughter. He is not surprised by the bumps in the road. It gives us peace knowing our journey is unfolding exactly how it was intended.

Thank you again to all our family and friends who are so lovingly supporting us. Be expecting to see more posts soon!!
