Today is a big day in our adoption journey. One of 2 big days coming up. Today all of our papers are on their way to Chicago to get Legalized to be used in the Haitian Courts. Once they return, off to Haiti they go. That means EVERYTHING on our end is done. I can’t believe how long it’s taken to get our dossier completed. I”ll just feel better once it’s in Haiti and there is nothing on our end that is holding the process up. Have a great Monday everyone.
Dave and I are sitting here on the couch and catching up on blogs. I just saw an update from Jamie and she said that she was able to see Frankie and love and kiss all over him. Tears just started gathering in my eyes and rolling down my cheeks. They are happy tears. My heart so wishes that I were there with him today. I really long to meet him and spend time with him getting to know him. I love each day with my girls and seeing them grow and change and I so desire that with Frankie too. But I am thrilled that he got some great loving from Jamie today. Thank you Jamie. You’ll never know….well I hope you do…. but you’ll never know
Well… I can finally see a light at the end of the tunnel. Our dossier has to be translated into French and yesterday I received all the final translations. So check that one off of my list. And two days ago I sent all of our notarized documents off to get state authenticated. Once those come back I have to send some stuff to Chicago and then off to Haiti our dossier goes. I’ll be the first to say that I am a detailed/organized person. And I will say that I am amazed that anyone ever gets through the paperwork. It’s been fun to see my list almost all crossed out. Thanks for all of you who continue to pray for us on this journey.
With being excited about our family vacation there are other things going on around our home that are exciting as well. I am hoping to finish up some things on our end so we can make some really wonderful announcements concerning our adoption process. We do have a referral on a little boy and I can’t wait to tell you all about him and the wonderful way our lives have intersected. We’ve known about him for a while now but have been waiting on getting all of his information in hand. So that official announcement is coming soon with all the details and even a blog where you’ll be able to follow our adoption journey. We are thrilled and excited and love being on this journey. Thanks for all of your support. We are in the final stages of our dossier as well and I should be able to send it to Haiti in the next 4 weeks.
We are almost done with our list of things to gather for our dossier. This morning we had our Psych Evaluation and so now I wait to get our letter from that and then I have everything in order to send off to get state certified. It’s very exciting to see the finish line in this whole paper work process.
We had our second home study appointment today. It went great. Just another step down the road in this very long process.
Dave’s family is on town for the week and we’ve just been really busy.
Thank you all so much for the Blog Love today. I’ve been blogging now for over a year and have never had so many people leave me comments and share in our news. Thank you … Thank you…. Thank you… for all of you who left a little love today or sent an email. It was truly a wonderful blessing to sit on the receiving side of it. It has been a wonderful, fantastic day.
