Once Again

After receiving much needed documents we found out we need new updated copies of our Agency License and Social Worker License.  This meant 5 more of both the SW License and the Agency License.  Ten documents in all.  Okay once done I picked them up at $20 per document we had to shell out $320.00 includes additional SW Fee.  Thank God I checked each of the documents only to find out they were no good.. $320.00 wasted down the drain and also another week delay in getting them apostilled.

Today I head back to the SW to pick up our documents but had to pay $50.00 to have them all redone.   I ran to FEDEX and send off the remainder of the documents so we can receive a travel date. So I carefully went to the desk at FEDEX only not to have our FEDEX account number.  Four women this time at FEDEX and not one took the time to help me locate the number I needed.  I was instructed to go to a computer to find my number which was to be sent Via Email.  Which never showed up, then I was told to call FEDEX and finally got a account #.

Everything placed inside an envelope with a check to our State's Commission's Office to be apostilled.  10 documents in all ($200.00)  FEDEX $27.00 one way and then another FEDEX return for $27.00 to the receiver.  I was blessed to have a family bring my documents to our children's country.  So this time next week our documents will be in a family's hands and loaded into their suitcases.  Everything will be on it's way on the 14th of October.  Our Agency Licenses expires on the 31st so we have to rush it there to get our travel date.

So far our dossier preparation has added well above ($15,000) and we have not even traveled.

We have date and a new little girl

Letting everyone know we have a date to travel in Mid~January.

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…
