Hi everyone...it's been awhile since our first blog, but that is because we have been busy getting the first step of the process complete - THE GLADNEY INTERNATIONAL ADOPTION APPLICATION. Talk about paperwork...but we know that this will probably be the easiest application of all of them! We had to get copies of birth certificates, marriage certificates, employment verification letters, physicals, Maggie's vaccination records, pictures and floor plan of our house, pictures of us, pictures of our family, references, insurance verification, forms notarized, fill out their application and contract and of course send them our deposit, committing to work with Gladney during this process. So, all of that is done.....YEAH :) Next step, the Home Study. So, nothing too exciting to share with you now, but we just wanted to keep everyone updated on what is going on. We want to thank all of you for your words of encouragement, prayer and support. We appreciate it now, at the early stages, and know it will be appreciated more as we continue to get closer to our child. We'll be in touch. Love to everyone!
Thank you, Santa Ted!
