We've made a decision! ::deep breath:: — The Bump
Adoption

We've made a decision! ::deep breath::

After a long talk last night MH and I have decided to:

-Rush getting paperwork done and go forward with adoption!!!!!!!!!!  Our ideal "deadline" to be done is May 25th and we've been told we can make it happen!. 

-If we're not matched by Nov we'll consider maybe doing a round of IVF.  If we have been matched, we'll be thrilled we've expanded our family and put future treatments on the back burner for a while.

Of course my case manager is out of the office till Monday, so I'll take a gamble and ask you ladies.  On something like an "Adoptive Parent Questionnaire" MH and I would both fill one out right?  It asks questions like "Describe your parent's relationship" and "Describe personal goals."

WHEW...it feels awesome to have made a decision and be working towards something rather than sitting in limbo.

::whispers::  I promise not to be a huge PW like I have been the last few days! Embarrassed

  • With those type of questions I would assume you would each fill one out- but I don't know for sure. Congrats on your decision!

  • Yeah, on our adoptive parent questionnaire each parent is supposed to fill it out separately (including the questions on parenting and discipline styles, etc.).  GL getting everything done!

  • Yay!!  You both fill out everything.  

    It can be taxing, but we found it really helpful in gathering our thoughts for our profile books.

  • Yay!  Doesn't it feel great to have something positive and hopeful on the horizon?

     Don't fret, time will fly and you'll be buried in paperwork soon.  :-)

  • Congratulations!  I think you can definitely make your deadline as long as your caseworker can get your home visits done.  DH and I gathered all of our info and then took a long weekend off work to do everything.  We did nothing but fill out paperwork (and took a lunch date to get fingerprinted), and were done by Monday.  It seems like a lot, but you can knock it out pretty quick!

     Good luck!

  • Congrats on coming to a decision! I'm so excited for you!!!

    And, yes, you should both fill one out. I know when we did ours, we both had personal questionaires, and a few combined ones.
