Pressing on...

It's only been a couple of weeks but we are moving forward in the adoption process. Here's an idea of what that looks like:

1. Application in ...check
2. Fingerprints done...check
3. Department of Human Services Background Investigation...check
4. Strange questionaire about our relationships with our parents, siblings, spouse, children, friends and the ways we interact with them...check (this one included a question about what we thought was the best way to discipline a child. One of the given answers was "restrain them in their crib"...tell me, who is checking that box and thinking it won't be a red flag?)
5. Proof of vaccinations for all pets...check
6. Medical exams for the whole family...check
7. Fee Agreement signed, notarized, and returned...check

This, to me, is the equivalent of morning sickness. So, what would be the equivalent to crackers and gingerale?

my mom says that your crackers and gingerale are Bella and Hope. mom says the crackers and ginerale calm you down and when you look at the sweet beautiful girls you have, that will calm you down! (good ideas...wish I had thought of it on my own!)

Amanda, Loren, Hope and Bella, congrats on your new addition! I agree that ALL the paperwork has to be similar as pregnancy and labor pains! We are all thrilled for you here! We look forward to hearing more as it evolves.
