We are going through this right now. Because one of my FD daughters is extremely special needs, the adoption lady feels we should be asking for more than we get for foster care board. Its hard. We had to write a letter, get letters from therapist, letters from doctors, letters from foster case worker. We haven't even start negotiating. We were told when we received TPR on the girls in Aug. that the girls should be adopted by Christmas. At the rate and speed we are going we are looking more at Feb. or March which is SO disappointing. Good luck!

This is all new to us. The girls are our first placement and we had no tintention to adopt. We just wanted to be foster paretns. The girls have been with us 20 months. Everything was reunification, but made drastic turn and all of sudden we are adopting them and all of our stuff is due now. They also want us to be completed by xmas. We will see if we keep going at this pace or if there will be a slow down. My head is spinning right now. I am so happy we are adopting, but this is crazy and I feel completely lost at the moment.
