I keep thinking that I'm really organized in this process but then I spend one night a week re-organizing all the paperwork. I'm determined to keep this process moving from my end as much as I can.
Tomorrow, it's a short day at work. This NEVER happens. The timing is amazing, though, because I need to get my fingerprints done. For some weird reason, it's more expensive for me to get the paperwork reprinted than it is to get the fingerprints redone. So, off I go to get my fingerprints, even though I'm a teacher with all kinds of background checks and clearance.
I knew that adoption was very expensive. I didn't know that it would come in $50 increments. So far, I've written checks for 2 applications, 2 official birth certificates and finger prints. Maybe I should have ordered some checks before all this process started.
I'm still waiting for all the pieces to come together for Reece's Rainbow. I can't wait to see my daughter posted under "New Commitments" on their website. All in good time.... Paperwork break is over. Back to the grind.
