Yesterday we finished our 10 hours of adoption training, a requirement of the Hague Treaty to adopt from a Hague country. We weren't really looking forward to sitting in class for two Fridays, but it ended up being not so bad. To the best of our knowledge, all of the participants in the class, both guest speakers, and at least one of the two social workers doing the training were believers! It was really a blessing to meet the other families and to be able to encourage one another. That said, we're still very glad to be done!
My second set of fingerprints got rejected by the FBI as well (no surprise there!), so now we are waiting for them to do a name check. Once our social worker receives that clearance, she will send our home study off to Holt to be approved. Hopefully that won't take too long! We are anxious to have this part of the process behind us!
