Document received

OK, so today is a busy blogging day for me. I just got an email that the documents have officially arrived to my agency, which means they should be going out faster. We were expecting them sometime next week but they arrived this week. Thank you all for the great comments and yes, I do plan to celebrate, but it may have to wait for the weekend as Chris is working.

As mentioned in my comments.....Ethiopia here we come....

Hi all, so yesterday I broke down and emailed my adoption case worker over at Imagine to see if she had heard anything. She had not, but she decided to call the Ministry on our behalf to see where the file is. Well it's been approved and is just awaiting the Directors signatures...yahooooooooo. She said she is expecting the documents early next week, and seeing as i've sent the money she has begun the notorization process as well. She was saying that our documents are probably going to their lawyers office today. She also said everything is ready to go, so once she receives the hard copy our package will head out to Ottawa for authentication and then off to Ethiopia. She is optimistic about our file reaching it's destination by the end of the month, beginnning of next....yahoooo.

thank you all to those who have listened to me vent, and complain, I will try not to do it again for awhile, as I know the hard long wait is just begining. She told me the referral time line is approx. 7-9 months, which brings me right into the court closure but I will deal with that once I get there.

I never taught it would feel so good to write up a large cheque with nothing in return, well not yet anyways. I had butterflies watching the teller write it up and then I swear I floated all the mail to the mail. Unfortunately the dollar amount was greater than it would have been a few months ago, due to the dollar value, but I really didn't care about that at all. Feeling this good is amazing, I can't even imagine how good I/We will feel once we are officially expecting or even better when the referral and court dates come in. I can officially say that the government of Canada/Ontario gave me the approval to be a

Thanks again to you all.


Even thought I am not an american citizen i am so excited at the outcome of yesterdays election. It actually brought tears to my eyes when I was listening to Obama's speech. This not only means change for American's but change of the world, and the fact that the Americans voted in their first African American to run the county is a huge step for African American's everywhere. This change will have a direct impact on my son and how he sees the world. He truly can be anything he puts his mind to and Barack Obama proved it last night. Congrats to him and to all the citizens for electing change.
