So this is what our dining room has looked like for the past couple months. This is what they call the "paper chase" phase. We are compiling tons of information for our home study and dossier. There is no privacy when you adopt, they want to know everything from your health, to your financial status, to who your family is, whether you have ever been arrested or charged with any offense. There is fingerprinting, FBI reports to file for, proof of marriage, birth certificates for everyone in our home and so on and so on. Most days I find it overwhelming, but progress is being made and that gets us one step closer to bringing our child home.
