2010 Adoption tax credit – review finally over!

leave a comment »

Kai was born in November 2009 and our adoption finalized in June of 2010.  I filed for the adoption tax credit with my 2010 taxes, got a notice that they needed proof, sent in proof, got a notice that they needed explanations, sent in explanations, and am finally done with the process.  They are allowing lawyer fees for the adoption and home study fees, all other fees were rejected.

So, with baby #2, this time around, I will be keeping receipts, photocopying receipts and paperwork and I will also send in a letter explaining the hows and whys of our adoptions papers.  In Kai’s papers, they were confused as to why our preliminary filing occurred before the adoption date…because we knew we were expecting a child!!  I want to add a “duhhhh” but I know they have lots of cases to go through and are trying to prevent fraud….I just wish we didn’t have to go through this process.  It’s expensive, a pain and just….oh so frustrating!

Songs for Kai’s little brother

with one comment

Mrs Bean told me this story last night:

Kai said that when her baby brother comes out, she will sing him a song.  She will sing “why are there so many”, “happy birthday” and “ABCs”.  And nothing else.

Kai loves to sing!  And she loves the Rainbow Connection song (for sleeping).  I think it’s interesting that those are all the songs she wants to sing to him – there ar so many other songs she could sing to him!
