Two down, two to go

We've gotten two of our four approvals. The adoption agency officially approved us, and our social worker approved our homestudy. Once it's sent to CIS (which will be end of next week because our social worker is now out of town until next Tuesday), they will hopefully hurry up and approve us. Then our mad paper chase starts with all the notarizations, certifications, authentications. Sounds like a lot of stamps. Then once Vietnam approves us, we get our baby!!! We're SO ready for this. I would leave tomorrow if I could.

I went ahead and ordered our birth and marraige certificates. Our SW said this would be ok, so I hope we don't have to do this again. It's not free! We're going to go ahead and get all the other papers together and not date them. That way when we get word from CIS, we can just get them stamped up. Hurry up and wait. This is going to be a LONG 6-12 months.

Yeah, I couldn't believe the number of stamps when I read your other post. Notarized, certified and authenticated? Why stop there? Shouldn't it also be signed in blood in front of seven witnesses? LOL

I think it's the perfect process for you though. You get to do things, and there is a direct performance -> outcome expectancy.

None of my business but for some reason I'm hoping you get a little girl. I can totally see you with a pretty little girl in your arms. :)

I'd love a little girl, but I am open to either sex, so they said I'd get a boy. The wait for a girl is twice as long.
