Spoke with an adoption agency in Arizona that do Mexican adoptions and spoke with Gladney Adoption Agency, who informed us of our unlikeliness to be accepted.
Pre-application completed and turned in to Adoption Agency.
Rejected from Adoption Agency for domestic infant adoption for being fertile and already having one child. Adoption Agency asked us to consider international adoption.
Emailed Adoption Agency and thanked them for their help. Also explained that we have decided not to pursue international adoption at this time.
After our research of all agencies in the area, we decided on Buckner, a Christian adoption agency. We filled out the pre-application and sent it the same day.
Decision to switch adoption to foster to adopt if Buckner did not work out.
Emailed Buckner to make sure they received our application. SW emailed back to say she was on vacation.
Received a call from Buckner saying we were pre-approved for the domestic infant adoption!!! Orientation scheduled.
Orientation rescheduled due to SW personal reasons.
Three hour orientation where we learned about the process with Buckner. Decided Buckner was definitely the place for us.
