The adoption hit a glitch – but not an insurmountable one. After we submitted the dossier on 9/23/08, we learned I have to get a new passport (had my maiden name in it) and have one of the other documents re-signed and certified (date of signature did not match date on letter).

Those should be finished soon, though, and when they are our dossier will be perfect and ready to go to Ethiopia. I’m hoping we have it all in by the start of November. That will be 1 year from when we started the paperwork process. After that, I’m estimating 6 months until we travel to pick up our child!
