This is it.
Essentially our life on paper: finances, childhood background, medical history, employment info, parenting styles, marriage description, background checks, homestudy, pictures and of course two (2!) fat checks.
All notarized, certified, and authenticated.
Took us 5 months to complete.
One road trip to Columbus.
Overnighted to Chicago and New York City and back, thanks to the help of 2 couriers.
Hundreds of copies.
Hundreds of questions.
Almost two pounds of paperwork.
It's now in the hands of our agency in Colorado.
After all this, we now have nothing we can do. It's out of our hands. Except pray that approval comes soon!
Thankful to get back to spending our evenings and weekends as a fam instead of a paper-producing machine!
But it will be so worth it. We're one step closer to our girl.
