We are pursuing the adoption of a 22 month-old that I work with. The only thing we have done so far is let it be known through the child's caseworker that we are interested. We know we will need a homestudy, but will we need to have all the supplies, room set up, car seat, etc. by the time the homestudy occurs? In a way, I would really hope not. Besides the obvious heartbreak of the adoption falling through, it would be a shame to buy all that stuff.
