On The Agenda This Week
Little trip today to the Offender Registration Unit to get fingerprinted and get the KBI/FBI requests for background checks sent off. I told Fallyn we were going to this office so we can adopt, and she thought we were adopting there and walking out with a new baby. My bad :( If only!!! ($50 each for checks, $20 each for fingerprints = $140)
Mailed requests for local/state child abuse and neglect searches. ($10 each = $20)
This weekend while we're on our little trip I hope Rick and I can get started on reading 2 more required books and writing the synopses. ($0! We have those books already, yay!)
Rick finished the required transracial adoption DVDs last night. ($5 to mail back to our home study agency)
Rick will finish his couple of short-answer essay q's tonight for the domestic home study, then we're done on our end with home study stuff, except the health checks and home visit. I think.
Next week will be filled with more paperwork because North Carolina's requirements, and we have our doctor check-ups on Friday. After our check-ups we can send everything in for our home study, and then we'll be waiting on our home visit and for them to write everything up. Then we send the completed/revised home study to our adoption agency and WAIT! (and rush around like crazy trying to get things ready, garage sale fundraiser, and other things...)
$600 to home study agency
$600 to adoption agency
$0 health checks! LOVE having no copay with our insurance! Plus our dr. is great about giving out formula sample cans when he has them, so...bonus!!! Have a couple cans from my dr. visit last week to start off the stash. I will probably explain the nature of that visit later :) Nobody panic, I'm not pregnant. Not possible anymore... might explain that later, too.
