Climbing Mount Paperwork

Originally posted March 22, 2007 on our old Vox blog.

Our adoption process is officially underway. It is nice to be able to say that after so many months of thinking and talking about getting started. Early last week we had a phone orientation with our agency, Gladney Center for Adoption. The woman who conducted the orientation was very nice and walked us through the major steps of the process. From this point on, the majority of the paperwork process is initiated by us, so we’ve got a ton of work to do.

The complicated bureaucracy driving the paperwork process became evident to me in two things. First, there is a 53-page orientation manual that comes with the phone orientation. Second, our first step was fill out a 2-page application to our agency. This application isn’t the application, merely the application to receive the application. We received the application via email earlier this week, and as I went to print it off I couldn’t help but marvel at it’s 54 pages.

In the mean time, we we are working on a form and some documentation for Immigration, which seem relatively uncomplicated at this point. We hope to have that stuff submitted by the weekend so that we can focus on getting the 54-pager filled out and submitted to Gladney.

So that is where we are right now, and that is what we are working on. As I mentioned in the Welcome post, we will do our best to keep you posted.

  1. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
