I received a call today from LDS Family Services! They were letting me know they received our paperwork and application information. Now they are waiting on our Bishop's reference letter, which I've already given to him and he is working on, and we have to mail in our application fee. I guess I did sorta save that for the last possible moment... who can blame me?? It's not like it's pocket change or anything.
So now we wait for Bishop to finish the reference letter and once they have those items, we get to meet with an Adoption Specialist and start learning what else we need to do to get moving... like a Home Study, CPR & First Aid Training, and adoption education. I have a feeling the next several months is going to be interesting, to say the least!
Hopefully we will enjoy our time on this journey. I know at least for now, I'm looking forward to it!
