I have waited to post an update that actually shares information about the next step in our journey. I am sorry to say that we are at a standstill, anxiously awaiting the first draft of our home study.
On another note, does anyone happen to know, once you have a completed home study, whether prospective adoptive couple can list themselves with more than one attorney/agency to widen the net? Are there adoption attorneys out there that do not require a retainer fee? If anyone has answers to these questions, your thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated.
