1691 and more
Today I mailed off the first of many home study forms! We had to complete Form 1691 which was basically a seven page application of who we are, where we have lived, worked and all that good stuff. There were tons of other releases and terms/conditions. Unfortunately, a little "night in jail" incident in college was brought back to the surface. I felt so embarrassed checking "yes" on the questionnaire and when I voiced that it didn't make Greg feel any better. Now I do feel bad for making him more self conscious about it. I started to feel very angry the other day, that we have to be looked over by a fine tooth comb while we are paying for an adoption. No offense to anyone out there, but when you birth a baby no one interviews you, checks your financial records, inspects your house or fingerprints you. Sometime it just seems so unfair. I am really trying to not get mad, not get frustrated or feel sorry for ourselves because I do know this has a happy ending.
