Free Money! (maybe)
Today I followed up on a lead from the social worker who did our homestudy. There's a grant for "reimbursement of nonrecurring adoption expenses for a child with special needs". Evidently, this is a county Public Children's Service Agency (PCSA) grant. Many counties consider children who have been in an orphanage as "special needs". Therefore, we may qualify.
I talked to a real nice lady from Lucas County's PCSA. Sounds very promising. She's sending us the forms. Bottom line...if we qualify, it'd be a $4000 grant ($2k per child)!
