Another step closer! Our adoption director, Radu, called today and let me know that our dossier was all in order and is being fedex to Washington today!! Whoo..hoo!!!
From what he tells me, the dossier can be in Washington for up to 2 weeks and then it gets shipped back to Radu. As soon as he gets it, he will fed ex it directly to Ethiopia. When it reaches Ethiopia, we will "officially" be on the wait list. While we wait, it will take about 3 weeks to translate the dossier. The courts are closed in Aug and Sept so I won't get a court date until they reopen even if we get a referral of a child before then. So there you have it! Praise the Lord!
PS I will let you know when the dossier makes it to Ethiopia.
