It's been awhile since we posted because we've been busy trying to get our dossier together. That's a huge binder that we compile with all sorts of info in it about us like our financial status, background check, passport info, reference letters, and photos. One of the biggest parts was obtaining our USCIS approval which is the immigration paper work we will need to bring our baby back into the country. All of our paperwork had to have 3 levels of approval, notarization, state certification, and authorization at the Chinese embassy. Luckily our agency handled all of this processing for us. Now that our dossier is complete, it will be translated into Chinese and sent over for approval. Once it's approved then we will be on the waiting list to be matched. Depending on how many children are available and what we are willing to accept for medical conditions will determine how long we are waiting to be matched.
In addition to our dossier, we've also been preparing financially and physically for a new baby to come. In Dec we decided to flip flop our two spare bedrooms making the back one the guest room and the front room the baby's room. Right now the guest room is finished but we are planning on starting in the nursery soon.
