Getting Oh So Close
Today we met with Maggie for the third and last time regarding our home study. We are so happy to be done with that process, not because we don't enjoy Maggie, but because that means we are a little closer to meeting our babe. Also, Fernando's HR contact has come through! He will be able to pick up his employment letters by Monday during lunch time. I'm so happy that our patience and relentlessness paid off. Now, we're only waiting for Fernando's lab results, my birth certificate, our FBI stuff, and 2 letters of recommendation. Then we should be able to put our dossier together to get the authentication done and sent off to the Ethiopian officials. We hope to be able to get all of this done by the end of June. We began the process in early March, so we've been at this for almost 3 months now...I think we're keeping good pace.
