So far adoption has been pretty simple, it's required two things: 1) Filling out a lot of paperwork
Filling out paperwork is no problem for me. It is annoying and tedious, but frankly after a MA program and Arnold's and I's first round of CIS (formerly INS) paperwork it's not really that daunting. Patience is another story. I don't really want to be patient. I want to turn in my paperwork that Arnold and I have collected in an impressive few weeks and start waiting for our referral. However apparently the waiting has already started because it's taken 6 weeks to get our first homestudy appointment. Hopefully our subsequent appointments won't take that long. Meanwhile... I'm practicing breathing deep.
