Getting Closer

The social worker sent me the rough draft of our home study today and in there it says that we are approved for one male, 0-12 months, in good health, from Africa.

Yay!! Now they have to do a bit more tweaking, and wait to hear back from our placement agency, who also got a copy and then that part is done. We might actually have most of our dossier, sans the USCIS, in by the end of the month. Then a few fingerprints, and we are officially on the wait list for a referral. It was kind of weird to see us referred to as mother and father in a document.

And, in the spirit of pointing out good things, remember how I was complaining about the state certification for a notarized document. Well I was shocked to have gotten that back in the mail less than a week after I sent it. They said 5 business days in their hot little hands, followed by mail time both ways, so they came in way under the mark. How often does that happen with a government facility.
