We finished our formal application today. Yay!! They now have you do it online which is so nice because we don't have to wait to have it mailed to us and then mail it back to the agency. Now we just wait.
We're praying that we can get through the entire process quickly because we'll only have a narrow timeframe to apply for grants. You have to have an approved homestudy (almost always), and most places won't take applications post-placement. That's why we couldn't apply for grants for Steven's adoption--it was only a few hours between approval and placement!
