Phase Two – The Big Big Application

Well, it’s official – phase two has officially begun. I sent a request to our adoption agency to mail us the full application packet. The long process for kid #2 is about to begin. I had forgotten how many pieces of paper are required. It’s amazing how four years can skew your recollection of the events. I remember now! Birth certificates, copies of documents, letters of recommendation, biographies…Ugh!

• Requested the full application packet.
• Scheduled my doctor’s appointment.
• Began the agonizing process of deciding who to ask for a letter of recommendation.

The positive side for this blog is that adoption will be a much bigger part of my life now so I’ll probably have more topics to write about.

Congrats! We are currently waiting for a referral with FAC.

Congratulations! I hope the process goes smoothly and quickly for you.

We adopted both our daughter and our son (who just arrived last month) through FAC. Two children is a blast, though with both of them under the age of three, it is a bit tiring!

Congratulations to you for your courage. My husband and I are both Korean adoptees. I have 3 natural born children and my fear is that somehow I would love my natural born children 100000th of a % more if I were to ever adopt as well. I believe one can never know how they will feel until they are in the moment.
