Kinko's Trip!

Today we copied all of our dossier documents three times, put them in order and prepared for tomorrow's mailing!  Mark will take the dossier to FedEx at 8am and it will be off to Virginia to be approved by America World.  I can't wait to get the call that we are finally DTE (Dossier to Ethiopia)!
Right now, the wait for a male infant is approximately 4-6 months.  We hope to receive a referral for Zane by February, travel for our Court date in March/April, and go pick him up in April/May.  It's so exciting!

First we double checked (really I don't remember how many times I've checked) all the paperwork at home.
Then we headed to our local Kinko's/FedEx Office.


This is Mark documenting how much money the copies are costing us.  He is a VERY trusty accountant!  :)
putting all the copies in order...


getting a little overwhelmed at the amount of paperwork...

Mark's version of helping... He's so faking it. :)


getting closer to the finish line....

My "baby bump!"

Manly "baby on the way" pose.

It's official.  I'm going to be an ehmyay, "mama!"

SO exciting!! I remember my trip to FedEx like it was yesterday, checking and triple checking that everything was correct. I love the "baby bump" by the way! Congrats!

Okay, my SIL Stephanie Dollahon, who went to high school with Mark, sent me over because we are adopting from Ethiopia too! We are on the waitlist for a baby girl.

And, I'm friends with Amanda. So we've got connections, baby.

And man, I wish I had thought of that baby bump photo. :)

yes -- I think we all are in envy of your baby bump photo. I think by the time I was ready to send that sucker off - I was just lucky to get a photo of it going in the FedEx box - it went in there at the speed of light!! Congrats!
