We received our dossier information!

Woo-Hoo, we're within six months! I received the email from LSS today. It was a pretty hectic day...lots of bills to be paid, checks to be paid for corn delivery last week, and a board meeting. So I'm peacefully relaxing at home. I'm supposed to be doing laundry.

Back to the dossier...we have to get another copy of birth certificates & marriage license, social worker's report stating that we're mentally fit to care for a child, a physician's statement stating that we're physically capable to care for a child, employer statements that we're employed, we have to state that our names are actually our names...I think that's it...and then have it all notarized. Good think Marcy is a notary! Then we have to send it all to the state to prove that Marcy is really a notary. We also have to include a copy of our homestudy, which is done and notarized.

These things all expire within six months, that's how I know we'll be there within six months. I'm really hoping it's quicker than that but that would still be August. We only started the process on July 30 so we have no right to complain about August.

So that's our big news of the day. Rob's home now so we're going to play a game. It's either cards, Backup, or cribbage. Lately it's been Backup. We're going to have to take some games with us to Colombia. Otherwise we'll go through withdrawal!
