And It's Off!!!

Wahoo!!! It's on its way and the long waiting for Baby Oren begins! We mailed our dossier to AAI today! Wow! What a relief! We've been working like mad the last month or so putting together our life on paper, and it's finally done! No more paperwork till we find out who our precious boy is! I'm not exactly sure what happens to get our dossier from our agency to Ethiopia, so when I find out, I'll be sure to post it! Here are some pics from "delivery" day!
Here's the packet our dossier material originally came in. Our life revolved around the contents of this little blue folder. So glad this part is done!!


Here's Macy with the dossier! She can't wait to get a baby brother from Ethiopia! :)

And Macy again... looking so "astute" and proud to be getting a brother from Ethiopia! Haha.

Wow, Congrats!! That was really fast :) I think it took us like 5 months because USCIS took 7 weeks to get us approved...so exciting to be in the next leg of the journey though!

Congrats! Such a big step... the next exciting bit is the phone call from AAI that your dossier is off to ET and you're "officiall" placed on the waiting parents' list... and then you wait...and wait... and wait...

YAY! What a great day! I remember when we sent of our packet. Oh, the prayers we prayed over that envelope. We should have taken a picture, too, because I'm sure it would have looked a lot like yours..crazed elation! :-) Your dog is so cute. We're a dog family so we can appreciate how they, too, know what's going on in their family.

I love these photos Rachael! Sending the dossier is such an accomplishment! Your dog makes me miss our Golden Retriever that looked just like Macy!
