Done With Service Plan!!!!

Hurray Hurray it's the first of May and I'm happy to say we're done! I went to the post office today and sent our service plan to Oregon. The service plan is another educational piece required by our agency to help us prepare for our adoption. It included researching Taiwan and it's culture, interviewing people from Taiwan, interviewing people who had raised adopted children to adulthood both internationally and domestically, writing book reviews, preparing our children for the adoption, beginning a life book, educating extended family about adoption issues, writing out a trans-racial plan, attachment plan and researching medical information on international adoption. It was a lot of work, but very interesting and certainly worthwhile. So, twenty seven single spaced type written pages later, we are all done and far more prepared than we were two months ago. Hurrah!

Wow, you guys, sounds involved!!!

We have to do pre-adoption education - 10 hours I think - and take an online class. And I was complaining about that!! 27 single spaced??? That's like a THESIS!!! :) Wow, you must feel as prepared as you can be!
