So here is the initial breakdown thus far:
1: $350 to update our prior home study.
2: $1,000 to have our attorney certify us as adoptive parents through the courts.
I have been selling items on eBay (I have 2 listed right now) and have put aside a very small amount to start. I opened a savings account online that is separate from our bank. Better interest rate and harder to access unless we REALLY need the money!
I hope this info is helpful. Have a blessed day all!
