A little closer...but not quite done

Our dossier is closer to being finished but we hit a couple small bumps in the road today.  We got everything notarized and together to get the "Great State Seal".  After driving to GR and waiting for 25-30 minutes, I found out something I probably should have realized.....documents from out of state need to be sealed out of state.  I was born in IL and my birth certificate needs to be State sealed in IL.  This makes sense...I just didn't think about it before today.  It was a little funny cause the lady in GR looked at me like I was stupid and said "I can't seal documents from California and Illinois"...opps! 

So we sent Chad's employer letter back to CA to get sealed....that's going to be one expensive document by the time all is said and done.  It was $20 for the notary...$25 to have it overnighted here...(at this point we realize it needs to go back to CA....oh well) $20 to the Secretary of state to have a State seal (this verifies that the notary is who they say they are)...and $10 to have it sent priority mail there (CA) and back.  So now we wait again.  It's a race between IL and CA... who will get our documents back sooner?  We'll be praying for them to come quickly so we can stop waiting on the dossier phase to be finialized...

California says it averages 2 weeks for the documents to be authenticated....we'll pray it goes quicker!  So even though I'm a little disappointed not to have our dossier at Bethany's Corporate office, I'm still so thankful God has moved all our paperwork along quickly....we're still way ahead of schedule..praise God!
