For those of you, who want to know what all is involved in adopting a special needs child from Eastern Europe, I thought I would share some basic information, so you can have an idea. [By the way, I have no idea what I am doing with the layout of this post! So sorry! :)]
1. Make a commitment to a child
2. Notarize, apostille (that's a fancy term for proofing that the notary is really a notary), and mail the first set of documents to Ukraine.
3. Complete all paperwork required for homestudy.
4. Complete three homestudy appointments. 5. Wait on homestudy to be complete. 6. Submit application to USCIS. 7. Fingerprinting for USCIS. 8. Wait on USCIS approval. This can take as little as 3 weeks or as long as 3 months.
Are you serious?
