So I will pick up the homestudy paperwork from her on Monday and it, along with all the other paperwork we have gathered together (collectively referred to as our dossier) gets taken down to the Secretary of State where they scrutinize all our notary stamps and then authenticate everything. Hopefully that will go smoothly, but it is not uncommon to have to “redo” something. Luckily all our references, births, marriages, etc are in AZ so anything that isn’t right should be easy to fix.
After that the dossier begins its journey – first to AWOP in Spokane, then to Washington, D.C., then to Ethiopia.
What an extra blessing this Easter weekend!
