Bundle of Nerves!!

Well today after checking and rechecking to make sure I had everything we needed we headed down town KC to the state building to have all of our precious documents state certified!!! We were so nervous that something was not going to be right and I did not want to have to correct things and return at a later date. So when we arrived we signed in and the very nice lady started looking over all of our documents and found problems on several of them with the notary. As our hopes start to fade they said they would be able to fix them and an hour and half later we were out the door with everything done correctly!!!

Since we were in town we were able to meet up with our good friends Matt & Maisie and their adorable little boy, Grant for lunch and had a great time.

Since we made it home before the post office closed I was able to get our dossier in the mail to our agency and they should receive it by noon tomorrow, they will review it and send it to DC to be authenticated, then it will be returned to our agency for a final review and finally off to Ethiopia!!! This is the point when we are officially placed on the waiting list!

We want to thank everyone who is following our story for all the kind words and prayers. It all means so much to both Kris and I. We are very excited to be able to share our journey with so many friends and family and can not wait for the day we can introduce our baby to everyone!!

Here is Kris and I patiently waiting and enjoying the wonderful weather in KC

Here we both are with our certified documents!!!

(as you can see Kris is very excited)

Congratulations! Doesn't it feel like a huge relief to be through with this phase of create/find/apply for a document, notarize it, certify it?
