Good Adoption News!!!

Yea! We turned in our "official" AGCI application and application fee a little over 2 weeks ago. Normally, it takes 1 to 3 days for social services to review your application (AGCI social services) and give you an official acceptance/ denial. (Then you come up with big contract money and start the homestudy:) We had a glitch..... our health insurance isn't technically insurance; we are part of a Christian share group, which we LOVE. Technically, it HAS to be insurance which will cover any preexisting condition; in case we get our child home and discover a major medical problem. Share groups must be becoming popular, because AGCI had 3 other families submit an app this week with the same health insurance problem. We have been really anxious the past few weeks, waiting to hear our "fate". Megan at AGCI called last night (I LOVE that girl!). Here's the plan. We will purchase a very basic, high deductible policy just for Kenny, one that we can add our child onto (and that covers preexisting conditions). I'll email AGCI our receipt of sale, and on we move to the next step!!!!! We are thrilled! Now I just have to search and find that policy :)


  1. Thats Awesome news! Did AGCI give u and estimate on when you might complete the process? I'm with another agency and they say 18-24 months. I hear lots of great adoption stories from AGCI and we are considering using them next time around:)

  2. The timeframe depends....there's that ole rainy season/government shutdown thing in ET. We are hoping to adopt a toddler (2-3 years old) so it could be as short as 9 months,and as much as 18. What agency are ya'll with? There are so many great agencies out there!

  3. Hi, I just happened upon your blog. We are currently in the process with AGCI right now and we love it. Can't wait to follow your journey!!!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment...I love hearing from you!
