A Year Ago Today....

One year ago today, we began our journey to parenthood. We sat in front of a computer screen and filled out an online application to our adoption agency, paid the application fee and hit send at 6:09 pm. We were nervous and excited. Since we had done a lot of research we did have some idea of the journey ahead! The next day, we received an email back approving us to adopt! What a year it has been! Even with the small bumps along the way, I call it a huge success! In a year, we completed all our paperwork, had it translated, and are waiting for a referral of 1 or 2 precious children! (Although, looking back there are a few things I could have done differently to speed up the process. But we live and learn!)

Step of Progress!

Life has been busy for us and I haven’t been blogging a lot here! However, I wanted to give a quick update.

Progress! Our dossier (adoption paperwork) is done being translated and legalized! It was submitted to the Bulgarian Minister of Justice for approval sometime last week! We should hear in about 30 days whether we have been approved as prospective adoptive parents by Bulgaria or if we need to submit additional information. Our adoption agency says our paperwork looks good and expects it to be approved!
