You Thought You Couldn't Do It...

Today CCAA announced some clarifications to their Special Focus program. Since these children in our Hope Journey program are Special Focus children, the changes apply here and may be important for your decision to adopt.

CCAA decided that families who have completed their adoption registration within the last 12 months would be allowed to submit a copy of their old dossier (along with an updated home study and USCIS approval) to adopt a Special Focus child. That saves a whole lot of money on document fees, authentication, perhaps adopting a Special Focus child is in reach for more families than we thought? Does this option allow you to consider adopting again?

You may also remember that families adopting a Special Focus child are allowed to adopt two children at once, as long as one of them is a Special Focus child. Perhaps the child you're currently in process for needs a brother?

Another option is to leave your healthy infant dossier logged in with CCAA and pursue a special focus child without losing your login date.

If any of these changes allows you to consider adoption and you are interested in any of these children, please contact me right away:
