Past Thursday we received our training certificate. We are officially trained to become international adoptive parents! Still, I bought a book that arrived yesterday called "Adoption Parenting, Creating a Toolbox, Building Connections" that contains more information that will help us be good parents.
On the other hand, one thing that may hold a little bit the Home Study is the background check! The government of US requires to check for all criminal records from age of 18. So... Talley's record is clean as it can be... but mine can be an issue . The home study agency needs to request to the government of Venezuela for my criminal records. Do you know what that mean? That it can take forever and ever to have them! The good news is that there is a way around!!! I contacted somebody in Venezuela to request them personally... so they should be here in two weeks! Isn't that wonderful?
I just hope that those records are accepted by USCIS
