Dossier is done!

I am so happy to say that I finally finished our dossier.  Man, things are much slower the second time around when you already have two kids.  The old me was so on top of every piece of paperwork, staying up late to get things done.  This time I tried and usually ended up too tired or overwhelmed or busy to finish it each night.  In some ways it was good because when things didn't go as planned and some things had to be re-done again…. I had way more patience.  In the end I finally sent off every last piece of paper and one massive cheque and I got the email from our agency yesterday that they have sent it to Lesotho and will let me know when it arrives safe and sound.

When it gets there that is when you could officially say we are "paper pregnant" and the real waiting begins.

It could be months, it could be a year, it could be several years.  Who really knows in international adoption.

But we are ready to wait since we know just how worth the wait it all is.

Oh, Emily... this is so funny that I just emailed you about working through all of our paperwork for adoption. It IS so much harder the second time around. I don't remember it being this much work before we were parents, ha ha. Anyway, super huge congrats on finishing your dossier! I will email you when we finish our stuff this weekend (yes, this weekend. We were sick all week and are a bit behind, but now we are going to finish!) Look forward to reading more of your family updates.
