Alright, as I discussed at the very end of our last blog post, we are now in fact partnered with a consultant group in the adoption: Faithful Fostering Professional (or FAC). We are so enjoyed be collaborating with FAC. They have actually been so great to collaborate with currently. From the initial phone call we had with them, they stuck out to us. They made us really feel comfortable, certain, as well as educated.
We have actually gotten a lot of inquiries concerning what an adoption expert does and also exactly how it’s different from a firm, so I will certainly attempt to simplify extremely basically. Adoption Agencies are commonly certified by states, so they work just in those states where qualified (which suggests, that is where you will take on from). Our professional group collaborates with several agencies throughout the US as an advocate for their adoptive families. This implies, we have no concept where we will be adopting from, but it will be somewhere in the US as well as because there is a broader reach, our profile book has the potential to be in many birth mother’s hands. FAC will walk along with us with this entire procedure. If anybody has any concerns specifically about FAC or how we chose them, do not hesitate to ask!.
So right now, we are completing applications to some of the agencies FAC collaborates with, creating our profile publication (which will be how we are presented to birth moms … really difficult job), scheduling our residence research (which ought to take 8-11 weeks to complete once we start), remaining to go after fundraising options, and simply attempting to prepare our home and ourselves for the adventure that awaits.
