I'm so excited, I just have to share...<br><br>
The big agency application arrived in the mail today. I was told the preliminary application would be accepted, but still.... to actually see the big bundle of forms and articles that is the BIG first step toward our daughter is just SO DARN EXCITING!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
To give you a measure of how jazzed I am right now, I just looked over the fees and costs page, and it isn't even denting the fabulousness of this moment. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
I wish I could just fill it out and complete the homestudy _right now_! Can we delay the holiday season and my sister's wedding so that we can focus on only this, 24/7, until it's done? Please? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"><br><br>
I want to thank all of you that have helped me find information and focus our search over the last couple of years. I've been a serious lurker here for a long time now, and I hope I haven't been too much of a bother. Now that we're actually on the long road toward our daughter, I'm so grateful for all the help and support I've received here--THANK YOU!

How exciting! It's good that you're feeling excited, rather than overwhelmed with all of the paperwork. There is just so much to do, so many papers, so many steps.<br><br>
I think it's great that you're waiting a little while before diving in. It will give you the chance to look through all of the papers, so you can thoroughly understand everything before you start. And if you're like me, it will give you a chance to make lists so that you'll REALLY be ready to go once the holiday season is over <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thats wonderful news. Your much more ecstatic over the paperwork than I was but when you break it down it isn't that bad, there are lots that you can get done in one day. Hopefully the paperwork part will fly by and you can get your referral and then have the crazy wait. Let us know how it goes or if you have questions on paperwork.
