Last minute updates on Home Study, WE ARE FINALLY DONE :o))

Tonight I can finally say we are completely done on our Home Study.  One update after another which has added up greatly.  All documents are notarized and ready to be authenticated.  It has taken one year and almost a month to get our Dossier prepared.  Having to revise so many document in the wording, new FBI clearances, Medical clearances & Home Study updates.

This week our documents are traveling to our State's Capital Commission's Office where 64 documents will be authenticated.  Once this has been done we will be shipping this off and shortly they will translated and our Dossier registered.  With most families I have been chatting with they have received travel dates from 3 weeks to 6 weeks.  Our plans are to travel someone in late December to meet our boys.

Our FSP has not moved in several months.  Even with grants on each boy it does not guarantee they will be available once we travel.  And funds will not be released until a travel date is given.   This week we had the expense of updating our Home Study cost $160. and There will be 64 documents at $20 a piece ($1280.00)  Grand total $1440 to complete our dossier plus travel cost to authenticate.

Next there will be shipping cost involved in sending our Dossier.  We are blessed we know several families traveling and our Dossier will be hand delivered in September.  Making our Dossier approved by October.

Again please if you are able to share our journey with others who advocate for adoption please do so.  We are going begin to fundraise for the necessary funds for travel and for two children's facilitator fees.  I will update our journey as our dossier is submitted and a travel date has been given.

FBI updated :O))

Today we drove 30 miles to our Local Sheriff station to be finger printed once again.  Praying this will be the last and final time our fingers have to be printed.  Each time you  think it might get easier but my fingers just can not seem to relax.  So far just this adoption we have been ink printed three times and had bio~metric once for USCIS.  With each set of fingerprints means additional costs to our adoption.  The updates alone have added up quickly and we will still have to notarize and apostle each document.  With 60 or so documents it is adding up quickly at $20 a piece for notary and $20 for apostles.  SO a big hunk of our savings we have set back for our trip.  Once our dossier is submitted we will be working towards raising the funds we need to travel with.  And with two new little ones this means two of everything from Airlines, Child's Visas, Children Medicals, Immigration fees and the list goes on and on.  Every dollar so far has came from our savings.  Not one penn…
