How exactly do you make my heart smile? Gerber daisies, Jelly Bellies and People magazine. That's exactly what was sitting waiting for me when I got home from work today. Thanks Em and Gabe for a nice reminder of your love and support! :)
There was a huge envelope jammed in my little 1920s mailbox yesterday. It was our first packet of paperwork from the adoption agency. We're about 50% through it (which took an hour). I still need to track down our marriage license and proof of life insurance. Hmm...where the heck did I store those?
My new goal is to learn patience. I'm an extremely impatient person which is something I totally hate about my personality. The adoption process is VERY slow moving so I'm sure there are plenty of lessons God will be teaching me. Mark, on the other hand, is the most patient person I've ever met. Thank goodness.
Here is the process I know thus far:
-Turn in paperwork to intake coordinator
-Schedule 2 hour intake interview in Omaha
-Attend 2 day ADOPT seminar (April classes are full so we have to wait until the JULY, yes JULY, classes)
-Within a few weeks after completing the classes, we'll be set up with our case worker who will start the home study which will take months.
Good stuff. We'll keep truckin'. :)
