I have started to fill out my application for the agency and sent out two of my reference letters for people to fill out. I have two more reference letters to send out and then get in touch with a social work to complete my home study. Then it is on to the dossier paperwork and the background check. I almost have my website done to be able to sell photos to help me earn some money to offset the cost of adopting. It is well worth it I know, but I am amazed at all the costs that come with the process.
I am so thankful for my friends that have been supportive so far. They keep me going as I wade through all the paperwork.
