Ivy Mae as a little squirt :-)

Good News! we received the email today letting us know that our dossier has finally been submitted in Ukraine!!!
I am soooo excited!

I am only posting it here and not on our adoption blog yet because Steve wants to wait a bit to make sure it's the real deal. Anyway, you all get to have the inside scoop!

We (at least I) were totally not expecting this today. In fact, we had spent part of this morning down at the bank getting 27 documents notarized for updating our paperwork!

Wow! That is wonderful!! I'm not familiar enough with Ukraine adoptions to know what comes next in the process. Do you have a general idea of when you travel after the dossier is submitted?


Nataliya said...

WOW, Congratulations!!! I'm sure it's the real deal, otherwise why would they send you an e-mail if it's not true? I'm so happy for you! Let's wait together!

Tami said...

Congratulations!!! That's awesome! We were just submitted last Monday...maybe we'll end up there at the same time! :)

Leslie said...
