Adoption Update (Pt. 2)

Today was the first of the three Saturday classes to complete our 20-hour IMPACT training. We began promptly at 9:30 am and finished up just before 4:00 pm with a 30-minute lunch break and two 5-minute breaks. Wow! That makes for a long day indeed!

There are nine couples (including us) and three singles going through this class together. There was ALOT of information to cover... so much to learn. We did some role-playing activities and had some question and answer sessions amidst the power point lectures.

We received more paperwork to fill out (I can't believe how much paperwork is involved), a checklist of documents we must provide, questionnaires to be completed by dh and me, as well as by our three children. We (the adults in our home) must be fingerprinted, have a criminal background check (we actually have already had the background check; that was a requirement to participate in this class), and undergo drug testing. All five of us must undergo medical evaluations and make sure all immunizations are current.

We have scheduled the first home visit and evaluation (to take place upon completion of this class).  We are well underway!
