This phase of the adoption process is referred to as the "paper chase" for good reason. It's involved, but AWAA is doing a notable job of helping us stay organized and informed. In the past few days we were able to submit our fingerprints for several background checks as well as receive newly certified birth and marriage certificates. This new week promises to be productive as we have medical examinations to attend, a meeting with our social worker, and Jon puts the finishing (and beginning) touches on his term project as well as takes a midterm test. To kick it all off, we're playing a couple rounds of Jon's new Wii game: Black Ops.
