Today we begin collecting and updating documents for our dossier. (Lisa’s definition: Every document imaginable to be sent to China to prove we are financially, medically and psychologically fit to adopt). Our agency requires a trial run of sorts as the second phase of the application process so we spent 5-6 weeks in the fall compiling documents. Hopefully this will help the dossier process to go smoothly.
When I told our oldest that I was starting a blog about our adoption and asked what I should tell people, she said,
“Adoption is not just work. It’s happiness!”
A good reminder!
