Exactly 10 years ago on Feb. 13th Dottie and I had our first date. Today we received that long awaited I-171 from the Department of Homeland Security! For those non-adoptive people out there this means we have official clearance from immigration to adopt from Ethiopia. It is the last major piece of paperwork needed. Tomorrow I'll be driving to Raleigh to get everything authenticated and then all the paperwork will be sent to our agency. Then the real waiting begins as we wait for our referral.
I really love Feb. 13th.
