Oh. My. Goodness. We’re finally done with all of our adoption paperwork. Between our applications, medical forms, insurance forms, personal references, pastoral references, employer forms, financial documents, fingerprints, background checks, etc., we’ve submitted nearly EIGHTY pages of documentation.
It’s amazing how much introspection takes places during the paperwork portion of adoption. It feels so foreign to spend so much time focusing on detailing our lives for others to review. There are also so many questions we had to pray about and answer that most expectant parents wouldn’t even have to consider in the beginning. I’m confident that it will all be beneficial in the long run.
With that said, I can’t write or type another word. Goodnight friends.
