Still Working on Dossier

We are just in a waiting game for documents to come back to us.  Our home study was supposed to take 2 weeks.  It is now going on the fifth week.  We need our home study to complete other forms for our dossier.  It seems so close, but yet so far away.  We are still waiting for one document that we sent off on 2/17/10.  They said it could take 6-8 weeks.  Finding some required documents are like going on an impossible easter egg hunt on the internet.  I'm glad I have a sister-in-law that deals with adoptions in Utah.  It has helped!  We need to keep taking our adoption education classes and finish those soon.  Scott has set the deadline of April 30, 2010 to have our dossier complete to send off to be apostilled.

Scott was funny but terrible last night.  All our friends are on pins and needles waiting for good news.  We went out with them last night.  While we were eating, he tells them that we have good news!  You could see their eyes light up.  I was trying to think of the good news he was talking about.  I was confused until he shared his "good news".  Then he told them that our local MLS soccer team Real Salt Lake was not going on strike.  I thought one of them was going to hit him.  It was a downer for them, but he loved it!

Completing Dossier

I received a new list of documents to gather for our dossier.  Our dossier is the stack of paperwork that we send to Poland to show our capabilities and qualifications of being parents.  We have quite a few of them already gathered due to previous notices and our home study requirements.  It is sometimes exhausting to have to apply for some documents because of the time frames or the process.  We have already stood in lines for hours to receive a long list of paperwork.  Although on the flip side, it is nice to have a list to work towards because it occupies my time and mind with a purpose to accomplish.  I guess I did have about three days to have down time and destress from the home study and previous requirements.  Here's to a new adventure!
