Welcome to the India Program!
At 1:49 p.m. today I was going through my list of things to take to Mom and Dad's for their 50th wedding anniversary when I saw this email come in. My mood instantaneously went from frustrated that we hadn't left yet to absolute excitement! I literally screamed out loud and didn't even open the email right away. When I told the boys (who had been outside when I screamed) they both jumped up and down and shouted "YEAH!" and gave me big hugs. They are so excited about having more siblings. We have told them that they will for sure get at least 1 sister, but God knows who will fit into our family so the rest is up to Him. This time around we are requesting 2 siblings again with the ages being between newborn and 10 years old. The India program is new with America World which guarantees that there will be some changes as we move forward with this next adoption. Of course, NO international adoption is without its ups and downs.
So you may be wondering what our next steps are. Here is the list:
Please sign and return the following documents along with your initial program fee:
· America World Adoption Agreement: India
· Schedule of Fees: India Program
· India Disclaimer
· Client Grievance Procedure
· Client’s Rights and Responsibilities
· Family Service Plan
Since this is our 2nd adoption with America World, we get a 10% discount on the program fees with them, which is nice. This time around, the initial program fee is $1980. Once we send that in along with the paperwork, we will be assigned a family coordinator and the true paper chase begins!
I will update you more as our adoption progresses, but in the meantime, pray for us as we begin the process again to our next child/ren. We can hardly wait to see how God works through us and our family and friends this time around!
