As part of the adoption process, we have to have training credits. This is aligned with the Hague Convention standards for adoption. We need 10 credits (5 training things). These need to be done before we leave for Ethiopia. This is a combination of books (our selections related to international adoption) and classes (in person at Gladney and on-line). We went to an Ethiopia Adoption class at Gladney on June 1st, and that counts as 2 credits. We have picked out a video which will be a second course. We will then write three book reports. One of our reports will be on Are Those Kids Yours? by Cheri Register. It has been a really good book to read, and we should be done in the next day or so. We also wrote a report on Does Anyone Else Look Like Me which is an excellent book.
Natalie will go get shots this week! Since I have been to Africa a couple times this year, I have all the shots. Natalie will also speak to the clinic about our kids (Caleb and Hannah), what shots they would need if we bring them to Ethiopia with us.
