Over the past few weeks we’ve been frantically gathering documents, getting them notarizing and scanning to our agency. Today we had enough of our dossier complete, so everything but 3 documents got sent overseas electronically to start translation! The documents we don’t have yet are Immigration approval, a local police clearance letter and a consent form to share info. We hope to have all of these by the end of the month. Once we do we will make the trip to Frankfort to have our documents Apostilled. At that point our actual documents will go to Eastern Europe and we will wait for permission to file another document that will request permission from the US government to specifically bring our daughter home. That process will take a few weeks then we will wait for travel dates.
We are expecting to travel in January-February! We will stay in country for roughly 3 weeks and after many appointments return home with our sweet little one!
I can not tell you how excited we are. This process is going much faster than our last one which is exciting because I don’t have as much time to get nervous! We are preparing our home for a sweet addition and preparing Easton as best as we know how.
