Next Step: Apply to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to be deemed suitable to adopt, then wait 2-3 months!
Technically the application form is the I-800a or the “Application for Determination of Suitability to Adopt a Convention Child.” A “Convention Child” is a child from a Hague Convention country. A Hague Convention country is one that has signed the The Hague Convention on Protection of Children and Co-Operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption, but I won’t get started on that right now.
With our Home Study complete we can also apply for grants, and hopefully set up an account to allow people to donate money tax-free if they are so inclined.
More to come, thanks for being on this journey with us.
