Last night we completed our first set of paper work - the application. It was exciting hitting the submit button. We checked and double checked all of our info. We survived taking our family picture. Now we wait for them to approve our application, and then we start the home study. We did find out that there is an International Adoption Clinic at Nationwide Children's Hospital in Columbus. It was one of the first kind started in the U.S. When you get your referral, they will set up an appointment with a doctor where they will go over the information you have received about the child. After you bring your child home they will also help you with all the tests and other things your child will need to bring all immunizations up to date. I did find out that our pediatrician requires this before she will see them.
