Hey guys! We finally FINALLY got to send off something that we wanted to send at least a month ago! Our DOSSIER! It hit our agency Thursday. I have one small correction to send today, but it's official. The dossier is not in our hands anymore. I hear it's on its way to Utah (don't know why...I trust my agency!).
Some friends might be wondering "what is a dossier and why is it important?" The dossier is original birth certificates, marriage certificates, financial statements, medical reports, proof of insurance (I MIGHT have yelled at the insurance company...just saying might have! Don't mess with momma!), several original copies of our home study, reference letters, etc. It is basically our life in a folder! It is not that easy to put together! It may look easy, but don't be fooled. Josh's face in this picture is TRUE to heart. He was so sick of that packet and the particularity of the requirements! What got me through the process was knowing this fact: There are bad people in the world; they just have to make sure that we are not two of those people! Once I settled with that, I could run the errands and jump through the hoops without getting mad!!
Our contact at the agency told me we would probably see what number we are on the waiting list at the beginning of October. I'm NOT looking forward to those emails. I feel like the waiting number is like the nurse telling a woman in labor how dialated she is. Some couples do not want the nurse to check mom very often. The reason being that going through the pain and not really progressing can be so discouraging! I am nervous about that! Does that make sense?
So, we are excited to have that out of our hands! We are officially waiting! YEAHHHH!!!!!!!!!!
