But what if you want to care for a bun that was formed in someone else's oven? We've learned that you've got qualify for what is equivalent to top level clearance at the Pentagon.
In just a month, we've each had to get:
An FBI clearance
An ABI clearance (that's just for Alabama)
A State Police Clearance
A Set of Fingerprints for a national background check
An HIV/communicable disease test. (No worries, we're clear).
One Child Abuse and Neglect background check for EVERY state we've lived in since we were 18. Uh, what? Brian and I have been kind of all over the place the last decade.... and it wasn't with each other. That's a lot of states.
Oh, we also need to watch ten hours of online training about international adoption. And we'll need to be biometrically fingerprinted in a few months too.
You know, a few basic requirements.
I wonder what our foster care system would like if some of this was implemented on folks trying to biologically reproduce?
We probably should run some background checks run on this joker, too. He WAS alive for five months before he became part of our family. No telling what shenanigans he was up to during that time. Does home destruction show up on background checks?
