Where are you at in the adoption process?

Are you starting to gather information? Working on your license and homestudy? Waiting for a match? Waiting for a court date? Or have you completely finalized?

I know we've talked about this before... But we've had lots of new members join us recently, and some of us have moved farther along our journey since the last time we discussed it.

So tell us -- where is your family at in the adoption process?

 We are 15 months past finalization.  After fostering our kids for 3.5 YEARS  before finalization happened, we haven't really had a lot of adjusting to do.

Boy, that is a LONG time. We will be at 25.5 months by the time we finalize, and I'm very itchy to be done... I can't imagine 3.5 years!

Finalized our second and last adoption last year. Now it's on to the business of raising our two, says my husband. :-)

We are in the Waiting Pot, meaning for us that when God shows us its time again to try for adoption we will..  we have had a couple failed ones, and when the time comes for us to become parents we will :)
