Our Home Study is now complete. The ONLY things I'm waiting for with the Dossier is one more referral letter which is coming in my mailbox today and a Calif. document which will come in the mail tomorrow. Then, I meet with my agency to APPROVE it. I then drive it (ain't gonna mail something this important) to the Dept. of State which is here in the city and wait for it all to be CERTIFIED. Then we mail it to Washington for AUTHENTICATION. Then Washington mails it to Ethiopia............and we wait for a court date. Once we know a court date, which could take, I don't know, but guessing 4 to 8 weeks to get the court date???? We can then book our flights to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to meet our girls for the first time and never let them go!!
I'll keep updated as the steps grow closer. Our boys are still incredibly excited and worry that this may not really happen. It would absolutely devastate them should this not go through. But it will, not to worry.
David and I have many great ideas involved with the orphanage that the girls will come from, so we look forward to sharing them down the road. We are surely blessed!
