Dossier Going To Ethiopia Today!

Ahhhh! It is out of my hands and on it's way to Ethiopia as of today. I've been waiting for this day to come. It'll be 2 months before I hear of a court date, which is how we can know when to book our flights. During this 2 months, the Dossier is translated, approved and given a court date. Very strange to book 2 flights there and 4 flights back. Sounds like a Paula Abdul song!! It could be sooner, so we're just hoping it's on the "sooner" side of time.

I also received confirmation that Homeland Security has received my I-600a application. Which is asking Homeland Security (go figure....why??) if we can adopt these children. The receipt gives us a place and time to get our biometrics done (fingerprinting for the 3rd time).

Now it's the big waiting game!!!!

  1. - I wait for referral
  2. - I wait for my I171H Notice of Favorable Determination Concerning Advance Processing of an Orphan
  3. - I wait for court date in Ethiopia
My list is certainly getting shorter, which is reeeeeeally fantastic.

Note: I realize I might be reiterating quite a bit as each step passes, but that is just how my brain works.

Another step closer!

Woo-hoo! Ethiopia here we come. I hope these next two months fly by...its so hard to think of our precious daughters just sitting over there in an orphanage waiting for us.
