As of last week, our agency received 5 referrals, 3 for boys and 2 for girls. More referrals are expected soon. All the families that were in Vietnam are now back home with their new additions. There will be 6 families traveling shortly after Tet, which is Sunday.
This past Saturday, Kevin & I attended a conference sponsored by the Adoption Resource Connection in St. Charles, IL. It was very interesting and we were able to pick up lots of information. The conference was free since ARC is an adoption ministry and their purpose is to educate others about adoption and adoption issues. We attended seminars on the Legal Aspects of Adoption, Creative Ways to Finance an Adoption, and Can You Love An Adoptive Child and Can They Love You. We'll be attending another adoption conference next month in Lisle, IL
Big news on our part is we have scheduled our last home study appointment, which is the actual home visit. It is scheduled for February 27th, which is also the same day as when Kevin has his physical. My physical is this Saturday.
