Happy New Year Everyone!! I know I am few hours early but I can honestly say I’m not sure if I’ll make it to midnight….so I’m saying it a little early!:) I am amazed at how fast this past year has gone and I am even more excited about what 2012 holds for our family. We have been truly blessed with all the support of our friends and family during our adoption process so far and I hope it continues long after our sweet boy is home.
With that note I want to update all of you on our current adoption status! We were able get over a HUGE road bump this past week and got our much need county assessor letter done! WooooHoooo!! This has by far been one of the hardest pieces to get for our adoption. I have taken a couple of trips to the assessors office and made many phone calls and each time I was told they can’t make a letter up for us and if we need it we should look into getting a lawyer to help us get this letter! Yes, I’m totally serious they said we needed a lawyer! Well little did these people know that when I really want something I will do whatever it takes to get it and being told no just made me soo much determined to get it done!! After spending two plus hours in the county building going up and down to three different floors, visiting four different departments, talking to seven different people, shedding a few tears and bribing my son with treats if he can wait nicely, I am proud to say we have our letter done!!! It has been approved by our state-side helper and by the team in the country we are adopting from! I feel so proud of myself and wanted to walk back in to the assessors office and show all the people who told me no what this girl can get accomplished!! But I didn’t…I thought about it but after two plus hours in the county building I just wanted out!! So now that that is done all that’s left is redoing our medical paperwork…again…and getting David’s employment letters done! We have some other paperwork that requires just or signatures and that is it! So I am pretty sure that I can honestly say that we should be finished with our dossier within the next 10 days!! That’s right everyone…I said 10 DAYS!!!!!! WOOOOOHOOOO….we are so close to finishing our dossier I can’t believe it!! Our BIG hope is to have everything apostilled and headed over seas in about 2 weeks!! It’s crazy to think that just 7 months ago we were thinking and just looking into adopting and now we are soo close to getting our boy home I can barely stand it!! It’s all so exciting and scary but soooooo worth every second of every emotion we have felt over the last 7 months!!:)
Thank you again to everyone who has shown us love and support throughout this process, we hope it will continue into the New Year!! And we would like wish all our readers a very Happy New Year and we hope that 2012 brings you love and happiness all through the year!:)
