The second email...
First email is here.

This isn't technically the second email since there have been a few emails between myself, my trainer, my caseworker and the caseworker who is compiling families for the child's caseworker.
There are a lot of caseworkers involved.

Anyway, here is the email I got this morning...

Thank you for your interest in helping to provide waiting children with adoptive homes. I did receive your home study. It will be processed and forwarded to the child/ren’s placement liaison and caseworker.

* If your family is identified as a strong match for the child/ren then the listed caseworker/ agency representative for the licensed family will be contacted.

* The family’s caseworker will be invited to participate in a selection staffing.

* The family with the best-matched strengths that meet the needs of the child/ren will be selected as the adoptive family.

* The family’s caseworker will be notified that their family has been selected. They will also be instructed on the next steps in the process.

We are officially in the process... now it just comes down to matching her with the best family for her needs. They will have a staffing meeting to go over potential families for her and then we will find out whether we are a good match.
If we aren't, our family will be presented at the next staffing meeting for all available children that haven't yet been place on the TARE website.

For that staffing, they requested a Family Flier, which I made yesterday which shows our family and gives some basic information.

It was a little harder than I thought so I tried not to over think it and instead just went with the first things that came to mind and kept it mild.
I would have needed five pages to say everything I wanted to say and it would have made me cry to write it all :)
Anyway, we are officially on the ride now.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
