Adoption is killing my...

mood, hope. I don't mean it but ugh!! All this stuff they want for hubby's DUI is crazy. They faxed me a four page question thing they want the doctor he saw after this classes. He hasn't seen this guy in what 4/5 years. How can fill out this paperwork? One does he remember and two some questions theres no way to know the answer to 5 years later. Then his new doctor here in OK won't give us the letter we need about his seizures because he's only seen him once. Now we have to get a letter from his old doctor in FL also. This is just getting more and more complicated. I'm just frustrated!! Sorry for the cry fest! I'll be ok, I just want this to pass. OH and because he had a DUI instead of just approving us our file has to go to a committee to be reviewed and approved. I checked on this before we applied and our casework said she didn't see a reason why we won't be approved but I'm still scared something will go wrong.

So busy!

Welcome everybody and thanks for stopping by. The short and sweet is we suffered unexplained infertility for 4 1/2 years before we found out we have very bad male factor. We were only give IVF or adoption, therefore we are in the middle of getting cert to adopt. Now that your all caught up the cert is going but it's so hard. We are almost done with classes but we still have been approved. They did our homestudy and send it to us, it read well I think but they said between that and our background coming back (hubby had a DUI in 2005) they need all this extra stuff they didn't tell us we needed in the beginning, even thought this was on our application. I should have known they ask for proof of DUI class completion but at the same time, if he has his license why do they need all this. Plus they want a note from the doctor that he's stable on his meds for his seizures. It was going so smooth that I guess I was just hoping it would all keep going that way and we'd be approved soon. I know this isn't easy and I knew it wouldn't be smooth but man this weekend has been hard. I just hope we can get all this extra paperwork for them and get approved, I'm just scared! I just want a baby so badly! In other news, root canal got finished a couple weeks ago and it was AWESOME! I feel so much better. I got my walking boot off as well. I've been in tennis shoes for a few weeks and I feel better but still having some pain. I don't see ditching them anytime soon. Doesn't look great in dress clothes but I'll live. I got a new job! Same pay, WAY better benefits. Paid holiday, sick, vacation, 401K, awesome insurance, and PAID maternity leave after I work there for a year so if it does take awhile to get a baby at least I'll get maternity leave, which will give us time to figure out the money/staying home vs working thing. I guess thats all for now, I need to sleep. Tons of homework this week and two tests and a paper next week on my first week of the new job. I think I took to many classes! I'm pretty burnt out! Is it Dec??
