I am so excited to say that our dossier is on its way to Washington D.C. to the U.S. Embassy! When it's approved here in the U.S., it will make it's way to Ethiopia!  The hubby got it mailed off yesterday. It was funny to hear his take on things. Yall know I was freaked out if you read yesterday's post. He said, "I was so nervous because we only have 1 official copy of all of this paperwork." We also had to mail 2 copies to our agency, so he mailed those off as well.  We overnighted both the official dossier and the copies so they would get there ASAP.

I did a little happy dance after talking with the hubby and having confirmation that it was sent off. 
Enjoy the famous Carlton dance for a peek at what I looked like!


When I got home from work our biometrics appointment from USCIS had come in the mail! (which is just a fancy word for fingerprints)  November 25th is our appointment.  So, it was a really good day in adoption land! Pin It


  1. Good news! One step at a time, you are getting there! Janell

  2. Oh congratulations! You beat us after all--we are waiting for the final money to come in before we send. So close!!

  3. YAY! LOVE celebrating each little victory!


  4. Woot woot! I think we did that same dance when we sent off our dossier :)

  5. Thank you ladies! We definitely celebrate evey step along the way. And Jess, it's so hard to be patient. And it's not like it's going to get any easier when we're just waiting, is it?

  6. Jennifer, so true! I have been cautious about praying for patience in the past because I know what it takes to gain patience. Lucky for me, God has prompted patience in my heart through this process. And you are absolutely right--it will only get harder. Good thing he remains faithful.
