It's official - we are physically and mentally fit to be parents.

We both had our doctor's appointments this week. Tabb also had his one-on-one with the social worker. We should be getting a draft of our homestudy for approval this week. Next up is getting our employment verified - Tabb already got his, but my letter was lost somewhere - and an affidavit from Tabb's health insurance. Then we need to identify locally and contact:
  • an early intervention specialist
  • an international clinic & a pediatrician (I'm assuming these can be combined in a pediatrician who specializes in international adoption)
  • a therapist
  • an interpreter
  • family respite care
Also we need to identify and interview at least two families who have adopted toddlers from Ethiopia. And we have some more online courses to take, I think.
Taking it one step at a time...
