Warning Paper Rant ahead............................

Well yesterday we received the packet of forms from the home study agency and let me tell you it is SCARY! Maybe it is just so terrifying because N and I are heading into finals and everything seems like a big deal right now. I have started some of the papers but when I look at the amount I swear there has to be 3x the amount of the last time we did a home study. I suspect it has to do with state requirements. Our packet also had information about what Maryland requires and it is a great deal more than VA. I have to be honest and say that some of the forms we are required to feel out make me pretty angry. I mean we have to send of a form to verify that N and I are not on the registered sex offenders list. I have already done this before for a job many years ago where I worked with children but lets be honest it says a lot about what most people think about those that want to adopt. We also have to have references, financial forms......And have to have a positive net worth lol. I mean in this day and age how many people N's age have a positive net worth. All I can say is thank heavens we bought a house. Now as irritated as all of the forms make me I am HAPPY to fill them out to be able to have a child. I believe the world would be a better place if everyone who was going to have a child by any means also had to fill them out.
