VERY important paper work is on it's way to Texas.
And now for some Cupcake Therapy.
It was surreal to go over the checklist in my head, to realize that I actually had a
completed home study in the envelope with the i800a form (both of which were major items on the checklist months ago), and that a little
girl is waiting for her mama on the other side of the world, and OH, by
the way, that mama would be ME!
Also, surreal is the amount of money going out for the process right now:
The aforementioned i800a was mailed with a check for 890 dollars.
In other news, also mailed today were the Dossier fee to our agency for 3,000 dollars, and the Adoption Medical Specialist fee for review of our little girl's medical information at a total of 500 dollars. (The last fee is on the lower end compared to others I have heard of...)
And faxing was done today for the adoption as well.
The adoption process is a job unto itself!
Ask any adoptive parent and they will tell you that it is all worthwhile!
(Now, where did I put those cupcakes?.....)
