Agency Approval!

Two more steps were marked off our "to be done" list today. I can't really describe it as a "to do" list because a majority of the things are not able to be accomplished by Le and I and are considered to be things beyond our control. We received notice from our adoption agency today that we have received our official approval through the agency. We now move our focus to preparing our dossier (the packet of documents to be sent to Ethiopia). We also received word that our home study was finalized and mailed to CIS today. This is the last documentation we need in order to finalize our dossier and have our documents sent to Ethiopia. Once our home study reaches CIS, we will be provided a date and time to be fingerprinted. Once we have been fingerprinted, then CIS will approve us and our approval letter will be sent with our dossier (this is called receiving your I-171). Once we are placed on the wait list, then the real "waiting" begins. Yeah for another step completed! Don't worry our precious children, mom and dad are coming for you!

Congratulations on getting Gladney approval!! That's awesome. I have been reading your blog since you started and really enjoy it. Our adoption journey is pretty closely tracking yours. We have our final homestudy visit today; all other documents are done. We will keep you in our prayers.

Oh, that's great! You guys are just a step ahead of us! We've had our home visit and are currently waiting for our home study report to be written.
