our I800A is on its way to the immigration office and we are waiting to hear back from them...
They will send us an appointment to get our biometric fringerprints done and then we will wait some more for them to send our approval to adopt a child from another country (Katie)...and then we will send our Dossier to the MOJ!!!
Our Dossier has all documents apart from the FBI check (which we are still waiting on), our passports, and the I800A approval!
Once we get those things back we will take it to the capital to be apostilled and then overnighted it to Europe!!!
SOOOOOOO excited! :)
With our dossier, we have to still send in $1500... (We should have this without problem)
It shouldn't take too long after it arrives and I will get travel dates...
and then I will need money to travel.... we aren't sure about the exact cost because a lot will depend on the time of year I am going and sometimes the prices change quite a bit. (We think around $4,000 and we are hoping our income taxes cover this...but if I have to eat PB@J sandwiches the whole time, I WILL! )
After my first trip we will need to send in another $3500 and I will need money for my second trip to bring our little girl home!!! (another $4,000 aprox.)
I don't know how all this money will fall into place, but I am confident it will, it has been coming in like crazy....... I am in AWE of God and the way He has orchestrated this adoption!
There is NO way we could have done this on our own.
To God be the Glory!!!!
