Well thank you very much RQ special needs forum poster! Last summer as I was waiting for our LOA I came across a post about non-recurring adoption cost. Hmmmm this was worth looking into. As luck would have it NC will consider applications from families adopting internationally. Once we received our LOA I was off to our local social services office to drop off our application....that was last August. The trick for filing for the $2000 reimbursement is that you MUST file before you leave for China. I had to contact children services a few times to check our status and a year later I was happy to open my mailbox to find a $2000 check! (This is especially helpful since I am not getting paid this summer). It might take some doing, I had to call a few times to check on our status, and I had to explain Sophie's sn in detail to the county head social worker, but I think we can all agree that finding a $2000 check in the mailbox even a year later, is well worth the effort!!
