A few people have asked for an update on the adoption so here it is:
Paperwork and wait.
We’ve completed our home study which required references, autobiographies, and answers to many questions.
We’ve been accepted by the agency which required a lengthy application and references.
We signed the contract with the agency which required tons of paperwork.
We are now trying to complete the dossier (large collection of paperwork about us that must be notarized, certified, and sealed by the government).
After the dossier is sent in we wait for 4 to 6 months before they match us with a child.
Once we have a face and a name we celebrate.
And then, we complete more paperwork.
It’s a lengthy process but we haven’t lost steam yet.
Hopefully the next time I up date you I can say our dossier is in the mail!
