Adoption Process Begins Today

So today is the official DAY 1 of our adoption process.

I submitted our application to Beacon House, found a social worker to do our home study, requested copies of our birth certificates, scheduled doctor appointments, and pulled out our tax docs from last year. All this document collection makes me feel like we need to get a safe! I saw one at Cost-co that was small - just for important docs and such. It's probably a good idea. I don't want to pay for certified copies of all this stuff again - (or have to dig it out of various places).

To reach the goal I set for myself today, I still need to begin our Home Study application and my autobiography. And, if I'm feeling really productive, Robert and I will decide who we want to select as guardians in case we die. What a pleasant thought. We've actually already talked about it a little, so we just need to make sure we both still feel the same and then call the lucky family to see if they will accept!

It's a small start, but a good one, I think!
