Fly like a bird

Ok, people, here is the big news: Our dossier is getting on a DHL flight to Eastern Europe TODAY!  We are praising God, we are one step closer to getting to Maria. Our big ol' package of documents will be translated and then we will be registered as prospective adoptive parents. Soon after, we will receive a date to fly over and meet her- FINALLY!

Please pray that there are no delays in the process on their side or ours. We do need to get some documents redone because they are only valid in EE for 6 months and by the time we get to court, they'll probably be expired: FBI clearance letters and employment letters. This means get them, get them notarized, get them apostilled. More cost involved and not a quick turnaround since I have to wait 1-2 weeks for the apostille, since I have to mail them in- no I can't drive 12+ hours to Sacramento and back.

Praying that dossier over the sea: Fly like a bird!


  1. That is just awesome news!! Fly, Dossier, fly!!! So happy for you!

  2. Gentry, I just found out something INCREDIBLE and too late for us but may be helpful to you. You can get your documents county certified and the LA office will then apostille them. The county cert is only $5! The apostille in person is $26 like in Sac, but so much closer. If it's a state clearance, you don't have to get it county certified... hope this helps!

  3. isn't that a great feeling? hope it gets submitted quickly for you! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog!


Thank you for sharing your kind words!
