Notaries and apostilles

Yesterday we made it down to the SoS again. We were able to get all of our notaries done in 25 minutes (there were 18 documents to notarize; 38 documents total) and we left everything to be apostilled. Hopefully they'll be ready today and I can pick them up after work, if not Mark will pick them up tomorrow. Either way, barring any more unexpected events our dossier should be on its way to Ukraine the end of this week. Of course, there's a lot that can go wrong between now and Friday. :) Please pray for our paperwork and that it would be done quickly and--most importantly--correctly!!

This wonderful state we are in has that cap on apostilles, and the SoS does notaries for free if you are also having the documents apostilled so yesterday's adventures didn't cost us anything. Oh, we did actually put a quarter in the parking meter. It should have cost us $380. Wonderful, wonderful blessing!

From what we can gather, all of the head people at the SDA in Ukraine have resigned, but things seem to be moving as usual over there. Dossier submissions have been continuing and it appears that appointments are being given out as well. I'll keep you posted as we know more!

Hi Courtney, I could feel the excitement and am too waiting for the successful adoption you'll have. I know that your blog inspires many couples out there who have plans of adopting of adopting children. Thanks for sharing your journey with us :-)
