Our Adoption Story: Training

We have been really busy working on the adoption!

As most of you know we attended the Pathways training class March 27 and 28.  The class was insightful, encouraging and educational.  It was good to get to know a little more about Gladney and learn that they are there for your family for the long haul.
We learned how to respond and retrain a child that did not have the gift of parents, external regulator, from the beginning of life.  A parent or a external regulator can train a child in distress that they are there to comfort them and help them through life.  A child without beginning with you will have to learn to attach to you and trust you and how you train them.  This class trained you how to respond to your adopted child no matter what their beginnings were.  Pathways was basically a parenting class for adoptive parents.  

At Gladney training we turned in our application to adopt to Gladney, and This week we will be mailing our first huge packet of paperwork to Gladney in New York.  It's kind of hard to tell you what type information is in the paperwork.  Other than they want to know everything about you.  We had a lot of paperwork to complete and at least  three different pieces of paper work that needs to be notarized for the first packet of papers.   This month we also will both will have a physical with our doctors.  The physical paperwork has to be notarized also
