Dossier Countdown

Just a little adoption process update.  We are ALMOST finished with the dossier.  I got a call a few days ago that our homestudy is officially finished and is being mailed to AAI and USCIS.  I had been waiting for our referral letters and now have both of those.  The only thing left to do is get one more document notarized and write a check.  I am hoping to be able to put the whole thing in the mail on Friday.  It seems like it might work out well, as the homestudy will be arriving around the same time.  We got our fingerprints done for USCIS so hopefully it won’t be long before we are approved.  I also sent out the forms which had to be sent to Washington and the Embassy a while ago so maybe they will also be arriving at the same time and everything will be ready to send to Ethiopia soon.  Then….more waiting 🙂

    That’s great. Even though finishing the dossier only means more waiting, it really is the key to really “beginning” the process. Congrats on almost being done. I still remember what it felt like to have ours done and how I felt mailing it off. Yeah….

    Congratulations!! It’s a huge step. I hope the system adjusts to all the recent changes, and waiting times stabilize or get shorter…very best wishes as you wait!
