Dossier Change.

When you start the adoption process you are told to expect changes and we have just had our first (maybe of many, hopefully of few). Yesterday, we got an email that told us that due to a change within Bethany, we would have to re-do a couple of pieces of our dossier.  So yesterday we got our new papers printed, signed and notarized, then it was off to the Office of the Great State Seal in GR.  After 35 minutes of waiting, $4 fee, and 10 minutes in the mall play area to keep the children sane, it was back on the road to Bethany's Corporate office in GR. 

And even though a change like this may seem bothersome, we find it a time to thank God.  I believe if we would have turned in our paperwork a month ago, our papers would have gone to Washington DC to get Authenticated (and we'd pay the $400 fee) and then when this change came around, we would have had to redo them like I did yesterday and then have them Authenticated (is that a word?) again and I'm assuming with more fees.  So this timing of the change probably caused no delays and probably saved us some money...Praise God on both accounts!

So now we continue to wait to hear that our papers are on their way to D.C.  Then hopefully some time this month they will fly over the ocean to their new home in Ethiopia!
