We are adopting two adorable girls who have a little something extra, Down Syndrome! We are excited to add them to our family. We will use this blog to update family and friends on our adoption progress and fundraising efforts. Just joining us? Click on the 2011 posts in the archive to find out why we are adopting the girls.
After a month of our adoption agency revising and editing our homestudy it is finally complete. I am so thrilled to finally get past the FIRST FREAKING STEP! Tomorrow we send off the last two forms that need to go into our dossier (adoption paperwork). It then needs to go to our state capital for all the notaries to be authenticated, then it will be translated, then shipped overseas. International adoption is FULL of steps and red tape! But it is all worth it when that new child/children enters your family. Suddenly, you forget all the process and think it was all no big deal compared to the reward.
