    Jenny G Don't stress out about your inquiry and if you will get a formal application or not. The journey to your child will be so exciting and yes either way you will be one step closer to Mommyhood. Hang in there! Thank you for the infomation. If we do get a formal application sent to us, we'll see how it goes from there! If we do not look like candidates for the program based on our inquiry, I assume we will receive a response indicating that as well. So one way or another, we'll be further along on our adoption journey sometime soon, which is exciting. Jenny G.

    Profiles: Presenting... YOU!

    Have fun working on those profiles; they are something to treasure later. it is weird how you work so hard on it and get it all perfect hoping to catch someones eye. Then after you match and bring baby home; it isn't complete because your new family member is not in there. When I see ours I am like WOW this was us before Cason. What was life like then????

    In Denial? Late Planners, You're Not Alone!

    Amanda Reading this made me think so much about our BP. She had the same situation happen to her only her 1st adoption was completely closed. She has a lot of regrets as she did not know that Abrazo existed and that people like us would be willing to have an open relationship. I just tell her all the time and I'll tell you time changes things and when your child is older you will be able to explain alot of things that you cannot now. I know it is hard thou in the mean time. You have wonderful AP's' they were in my orientation group and they love little Cliff so much; You and he complete their family. We cannot go back and change things we did not know so don't be too hard on yourself about your 1st placement just do all you can with this relationship and who knows what wil happen! if your 1st adoptive family knew the benefits of having more openess then they would know that it is best for your 1st child. Hang in there!

    Financing An Adoption

    Ya know it is nice that there is a 10,000 tax credit; that should help everyone! One thing Mark and I tried to keep in mind is that adoption while expensive is what most people today finance for a car and a child is definately more important than that!
