Dossier is done, bring on the apostilles
Tuesday, August 07, 2007
Things are moving along well ahead of schedule. We got our updated homestudy today and over the weekend we got the rest of the redo of the dossier done. Again, because it's been over a year since we had our homestudy done we needed to get it updated (per Russian requirements) and since we are now going to a different region all of the other documents in the dossier also required a "do-over".

The only real negative part of all this is that we have our referral but cannot get travel dates until the dossier is completed and in region. So we've been a bit...er...pressing in our mood to get it done. But we've been conservative in our estimation for when we'd have it done, thinking it would be great to have everything to our agency by August 17th. So being able to get it to them by the end of this week is awesome.

    That is great. You're a week ahead of schedule. I'm guessing it will have to be registered before you can get dates, so I'm hoping the translation goes VERY quickly.

    Wow...something adoption related that is ahead of schedule. That's one for the record books! ;-)

    I know it must be hard to have your referral and know that paperwork is holding you back. But that is great motivation to get you moving. Sounds like things are moving quickly!
