Good News!

Today, I came in to work after being off yesterday and found an e-mail from my adoption worker that we can start our dossier. What is funny is last night, I sent off an e-mail to her about some forms we needed to complete and also asked that now that we are under #100, when we'd be able to start our dossier. Too bad, we weren't told this before the weekend, I could have shared this with the people I saw at the FCVN Tet celebration. (More about the Tet celebration in a future post.) Also, just today on the train, the people I ride with asked me how things were going with the adoption. I guess tomorrow, I'll have some news for them Well, I really need to get back to work. Just wanted to share our good news!

JUST ADDED: Because of this, I decided to treat myself to Starbucks (also our coffee maker and hot water dispensed is out of order); well it is getting colder and colder, this morning was not even 5 above and by now it is even colder. I swear it has to be below zero and then if you factor in windchill, it would be even colder still. 1 month and 1 day until spring. Hurry up and get here. March 20th will also be Kevin's b-day!

Hi Kathryn,
My dossier is coming along. I just got 3 of my letters today and I need to get everything notarized. I hope I can get things sent to Springfield to be certified soon. How's your dossier coming?
