All this to say... the packet was pretty stinking self explanatory, even with my over analyzing eye, in explaining where we go from here! We'll set up an orientation call to either have sometime this week or the beginning of next to go over the packet and any questions we might have. We'll then sign and notarized the stack of papers in this packet and send it back to AGCI along with our first big check of the journey! $7,390 to be exact. Broken down: $6000 Agency Fee, $1000 Ethiopia Program Fee, $350 Non-AGCI home study review, and $40 Eyes Wide Open workbook. The amazing thing about this is the money is in the bank saved up to do just this! After sending in our $300 application fee we are left with $7,760 to cover this first financial hurdle. This is where I look back over the past couple months amazed at His faithfulness to provide in ways we would have never imagined! This is where I have faith that He will continue to work in ways that can only be contributed to Him!
After AGCI receives our signed and notarized contracts and agreements they'll send us a mega adoption planner packet in the mail that includes all the paper work we'll need to gather for our dossier. We can go ahead and start the home study process as well once we have half the home study fee saved up of $500, which we're just a couple hundred bucks shy of.
