Finishing paperwork!

So we have finished all the wonderful paper work that is required for Phase 2. We have been asked several questions about what we have to do and I would like share with all of you. This is also information that I wished I would have known when we started the process.

The documents that a couple needs to have:

These are all sections that have to be filled out and each one has multiple questions:
Financial Statement
Health Insurance information
Parents Background
Sibling’s background
Matching Sheet for both spouses
Questionnaire for both spouses

The questionnaire has several parts and is by far the most time consuming out of all of them. These are the subcategories in the questionnaires:

Marriage (6 questions)
Children (2 questions)
General Health (5 questions)
Other Information (2 questions)

We are now waiting for our background checks to come in so we can move onto the next step, which includes individual interviews, an interview together and then a visit in our home by our case worker to complete our home study.

We are now announcing to the world that we are...


We are so excited for this new adventure in our life and as we start this adoption process, we look forward to sharing this journey with all of you!

Right now we are in the phase 2 of the adoption process. This is where we fill out more paper work and get our home study done. Once the home study is complete we will be approved to adopt.

Thank you for all your support and please share with others that we are looking to find our family!

A Story of Love

We're an expecting couple who just don't know when
our journey as parents in this life will begin

There's a special young couple that we love so dear
because we are broken they will bring our child here

Into our Family this couple always will be
as this child we love, is sealed to us for eternity

Through this trialing time we can learn and grow
as the seeds of love, together we sow.
