We are now officially in Adoption Subsidy negotiations. I received the packet in the mail today. It came just one day after we got an apology letter from the Caseworker. It had been addressed to both us and the Judge apologizing that over the summer the original Subsidy packet had been lost by someone in their Department. (Go figure, it's par for the case) But boy! She must have jumped right on it!

I can't tell you how relived I am to see things moving in the right direction. We had been at stand still for far too long.

What is an Adoption Subsidy for, you ask? Well, to help encourage the adoption of special needs children, federal subsidies were created. A child may receive a federally funded adoption subsidy under Title IV-E or a State funded adoption subsidy. Subsidies may be simply Medical Coverage for the Child. And/Or financial support to help cover the child's daily needs.

Our packet explains that we have several options. We have already decided and will indeed be applying for the Subsidy and have 15 days to get our request and all of the required financial statements and documentation from Doctors, Therapists or other Professionals returned to the State for consideration.

Trust me, I'm in high gear! There is a light at the end of this long dark tunnel after all.
