Adoption Timeline 2017

Jan. 2017: Start praying about which adoption type to pursue

Feb. 2017: Attend info session for Foster Care

Mar. 2017: Sign up for IMPACT training to adopt from Foster Care

Apr. 1, 2017 attend first IMPACT training. Leave there broken hearted for kids in the system and learn that it will be very difficult to adopt a child younger/or equal to our son's age. Praying for guidance, knowing that God has placed a burden in our hearts to adopt another child.

April 3, 2017: We feel International Adoption is where our heart has been all along. But we fear the high cost of the process. We decide to contact our agency (same one we've worked with before) trusting that God will provide for this adoption like He has in the past for our previous one. Submit preliminary application. Get a reply that same day that we can skip orientation because we are already familiar with this kind of adoption.

April 5, 2017: Phone meeting with our agency's global office to discuss changes in Albanian adoption laws and wait times.

Next step:
Awaiting Formal Application. First fee we will encounter $550
