It's been one week since we submitted our application to our adoption agency. We received confirmation today from the agency that we have been accepted. When we applied last week, we learned the agency is currently representing 18 families and they only take 20 at a time, so we were hoping two more families wouldn't beat us to the punch and it looks like that didn't happen.
For the past week, we've been cruising through the paperwork. I've finished all my personal essays and Justin is working on his. We have a doctor's appointment set up for next week. I was worried that we'd have to request new copies of our birth and marriage certificates, since I had absolutely no clue where they were or if we were even in possession of some of them. But we looked for a minute in the basement and found a file with everything in it. I was amazed. My friend at work, Jamie, said it's a sign that we are meant to get on this list quickly because there will be a baby for us soon. I hope so!
