Moving Forward

It has been a busy few weeks getting all the mega paperwork done for the Court Dossier. Trying to explain and convince people to do things a certain way with certain wording has proven to be quite challenging again. I spent HOURS on the phone trying to get a two sentence letter from our mortgage company. They kept telling me they do not write letters with an original signature and a recent mortgage statement and history is all they can do for me. Finally had to go to the main office building THREE times to get this one letter with a real persons signature! Good grief!! I also seriously do not want to have to go back to a CPA anytime soon and explain 1000 times that things have to be done a certain way!! Anyway, after feeling like this has been my FULL TIME job our Court Dossier is complete and on its way to Russia. We may have to redo medicals again because they are only good for three months and our release letter for little B had not arrived yet, so we will see.

I don't envy the aggravation of the dossier, and I think what makes it even more frustrating is that it seems like such simple things you are requesting!!!!
Lifting you up as you hold tight!

I remember this nighmare with our adoption, and I think Russia's requirements are even tougher then Kyrgyzstan's. I'm glad to hear you got through it!!!!

Just reading about you gathering those papers is stressful for me. I'm so glad you are DONE. I'm hoping that we won't have to redo our medicals too... but it's looking like we might have to. *sigh* HURRY, hurry, HURRY Russia please let us bring these precious children HOME runs thru my mind CONSTANTLY -- even tho I do know that God is in control.
Best wishes!!!

Stumbled across your blog. We just sent our Dossier to Ukraine for a March 25th submission date to travel in the Spring for up to two more little ones! I can relate to your ups and downs of collecting the Dossier! God's speed.
