Ok so I'm in the research step of the adoption process. I've been emailing/calling all the agencies I can find and have heard of around us to get their information. Well I found one that was recommended by a few different people. It's a Christian agency, which I really like, and is supposed to have lower fees than most agencies ( which DH really likes!). So I email them and ask for more information. They send me the requirements list and say if we both meet all of them to reply and they will send us the next step. No problem. I read over the requirements and notice that we both have to be a member of the same church. Well DH is a member of his family church & I am a member of my family church. We attend a totally different church ( in a different town since we moved) but have not joined it yet. We probably will join this church but just haven't felt like it was the right time to do so. So I emailed her back and explained the situation. She responds and says, "I'll be glad to send you the pre-application as soon as you have met all requirements." UGH! I know it's a requirement but I don't understand what us being members of the church has to do with us being Christians. ERR! I really wanted to get their information. I don't want to join for the wrong reason.
Thanks for letting me vent!
