While waiting for that I've been researching International Adoption Grants.
I'm finding out that the majority of them will not consider your application until after you've had an approved home-study.
So, the most important step of fundraising for us is now.
We need to save/raise $1,000 to be officially matched through RR.
And we need approximately $2,000 to get our home-study done.
We wondered if since we're licensed foster parents, if we could just use that home study. Unfortunately it is a completely different process, different program, different agency, and different requirements. So, we have to get another one done.
In order to kick off the fundraising I am going to be hand-making boutique style items. I plan to make knit, crochet, and sew crafts/clothes/etc.
