So during my planning period at school I headed downtown to the Secretary of State's office to have a state seal put on our dossier. It was kind of a long, bit of confusing ordeal (I REALLY don't like going downtown), but the good news is, it's finished now!
Here's our dossier and our Power of Attorney (mailed together, but considered 2 different documents):
Here's a close-up of the glorious seal!
And here's a side view of the stack of docuements that is our dossier. I've been carrying it around with me the past 2 days while I got it notarized. I was too scared to leave it in the car. If my car got stolen, I would be more upset about it being inside! Take the car; leave the paperwork!
Today the hubby is mailing off the dossier. I am a huge control freak (after all this has been my baby for about the last 7 months!), but I thought it would be good for him to do it. I need to learn to relinquish control! Adoption will definitely teach you that lesson!
