I received notification today that our dossier was complete and correct. It was sent to be authenticated by the US State Department and then it will be on it's way to the Embassy of Ethiopia. Yay!!
Also checked the bank account and saw that the Dept. of Homeland Security finally cashed our check to apply for the child's immigration with USCIS. Hopefully we'll get our fingerprint appt. soon.
Things are moving right along. Actually, now it is finally sinking in that this is really happening. Now I feel nervous. :-) Happy & excited, but nervous, too. Still relieved to be mostly done with all the paperwork though!
