DH & I are excited to announce that we have been approved to be adoptive parents through the home study process. As some of you already know we started the process in April and our final interview was tonight! Our Dear Birth parent book is now available to be shown to birth parents. We will be working with our agency as well as the birth parents to hopefully allow for an open adoption which will allow for an exchange of pictures, letters and possibly even visits after our baby arrives.
We want to thank all of our family and friends that have written letters of recommendation as well as wrote pages in our Dear Birth parents book. Thank you for taking the time to listen when we complained about being finger printed and helping us write what our "parenting style" will be.
At this point in the process we wait until we are matched with a birth parent. Unlike a pregnancy, our wait to be matched could be months or years but once matched we will only have a few months or possibly weeks to prep for the arrival of our first baby! We hope we have big news soon!
