In November, we started collecting all of the documents that we would need. I started sending away for copies of our marriage certificate, birth certificates, etc.. in an effort to get everything in line so that we could start our home study.
On John’s birthday in December we got the last of the paperwork that we needed for our home study to start – getting our passports (woo hoo) and police reports (we’re clear). After that, we headed over to the adoption agency to get our paperwork notarized and double checked. On this day, we found out that we were ready to make an appointment for our home study. December 22nd! We were getting closer to bringing sweet Naiya home.
