Our Application is IN!

We have formally applied to adopt as of today! There were a lot of docs to submit but we had to wait until we had our wedding certificate to actually give them to the DHHS as they wouldn't allow us to formally apply until we were wed.


Next step: DHHS (Dept. of Health and Human Services for all you non-Tasmanians) will do a check on us in their government database to make sure we're not unsavoury characters and then we will pay our application fees and be allocated a caseworker for complete our homestudy.

Shortly after that, in early Jan or Feb 2007, there is a mandatory Adoption Workshop that we must attend.

See you on the other side of the paperwork ....
