Holy cannoli there is so much paperwork to obtain and lately I am feeling especially overwhelmed. We are in the process of trying to collect 4 certified copies of our birth certificates and marriage licenses. We are getting physicals done, FBI and DOJ live fingerprint scans completed, employment verification, Child Abuse Clearances from every state we ever lived in (7 between the 2 of us), and reference letters. On top of all this, we have to get all of these documents notarized and Apostilled, I guess a Notary isn't good enough, errgg. We also have to complete 10 hours of course work online to adopt internationally in preparing for our adoption, oh and we are trying to learn the Polish language. Justin created a spread sheet checklist of all things needed in the hopes of making life easier as everything slowly come in the mail. Also, our home study is going to be scheduled soon and this is basically a full on investigation into our home and lives.
Until we get all of this completed, there will not be much to report.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned...
Karin and Justin
