What is a dossier? Well, we are trying to figure that out ourselves..
Basically, it is the entire package of paperwork that we will be sending to Ethiopia in order to get approved to adopt there.
What this document requires? That, my friend, we are just figuring out. But, I can tell you. It is an ENORMOUS amount of paperwork. But, when you have a child on the other end of that paperwork, it makes the whole process a lot more exciting and totally worth it!
Here is one copy of the dossier document. Every single page is a form that needs to be completed, signed and notorized. Oh, and they require 3 originals of each page.
So, are you feeling overwhelmed yet?
Here is what is keeping me so positive about it all and keeping my grey hairs at bay.
1. its for my kid. duh. i’d do anything for my kids. 2. some day, i have this feeling that maybe some of you will watch our story unfold and feel the desire to experience the beautiful journey of adoption yourself..and then we can be your information station!!
But, if you see me running around like a chicken with its head cut off….in need of a shower and a tranquilizer shot…well, don’t remind me of my vow of serenity. I might just toss a poopy diaper in the back of your car.
