Adoption Update: Home Study Finalized

Posted: November 9, 2007 in Adoption, Home Study

We have officially been on the waiting list for an infant from Taiwan for one month now, and we received our finalized home study report in the mail today.  Woo-hoo!  It feels great to have this major step completed. 

Our next step: compile the paperwork for our dossier and mail it to our agency.  The dossier includes several official documents: our home study, notarized copies of our passports, physicians’ reports, criminal background checks, a financial statement and verification of employment, as well as our birth certificates, and our marriage certificate.  Eventually our dossier will also include approval from the US Government to adopt an orphan from overseas.

    Congrats on your finalized home study, guys!! That’s so exciting!!!!

    I’m being a little lazy with my dossier. We do have our 171-H, but I figure I have awhile on the rest of it. It’s kind of nice that with the Taiwan process, you don’t have to submit your dossier before referral! I’m kind of “dossier-d out” because I just completed a China dossier in August!!!!

    Keep us posted on how the paperwork goes…
