We finished our pre-adoption classes (PAC)! We had PAC on Thursday and Friday this week. It was 16 hours, most of which consisted of listening to different people talk. We were in a small group with 4 other couples - we were a fairly diverse group of people in how we all decided on adoption. It was good meeting them, and we plan to touch base periodically to tell each other where we are at in the process.
PAC was good - there wasn't too much "new" information for Aaron and me, but there we did walk away feeling more prepared to become a multi-racial family; we have had some really good discussions about things that were talked about which I am sure will continue in the weeks and months to come. It will be interesting to see how all the "in theory..." thoughts end up presenting themselves in real life.
Next step - complete a "self study" (in the midst of packing to move in less than 3 weeks!) and after that we get assigned a social worker and we will start our homestudy.
