Dossier is Finally Complete (...mostly)

On Monday Bill drove to Sacramento in the morning and got the documents all state certified. Then off the dossier went to our document facilitator so that they can file it with the State Dept. in Washington, and then to the Kyrgz Embassy.

There was only one minor hitch which we uncovered today. And really, it was easily handled. Our original copy certified Marriage License from Vermont still has to be Secretary of State certified. I thought certified meant certified, but I guess not. And I thought if something was printed on State Embossed letterhead and says "certified", then we were golden. Guess not. But our facilitators are super helpful. They are going to get this one document state certified for us for a very reasonable fee. So, instead of using my mommy card (which by the way didn't work with the sheriff who pulled me over for speeding ticket last week), and grovelling to the Vermont Secretary of State office myself, our document facilitator will be doing that for me. I think that is wise, considering they have over a decade of experience doing this, plus my recent track record using my mommy grovelling skills isn't so impressive.

Anyway, nothing is going to get me down, we are going to be meeting D a week from today!! Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!!!

Hi!! Just found your blog. Congrats on your little man...your sneak peeks are great and from what I see, he is certainly a QT. I am just home with my Little Squirt - it wasn't long ago that I was in the same place as you...anxiously waiting to meet your baby.

All the best!
