We've been translated!!!

Dear John and Lori,

Today I finished printing the translations, copying and legalizing your dossier.

The dossier, plus 2 copies and the check for Carol are all in a box to be delivered on Thursday.

Carol will take your dossier to the US Dept of State next week – it takes several days as only a 15 docs per day can be hand delivered.

Then when she has them all authenticated she will do the copies of the authentications – then she be ready to submit your dossier to the Embassy.

Carol anticipates sometime next week.

I will let you know!

Have a great day!

The above is from our caseworker and was received about an hour ago!! Hooray! We were told about 2-3 weeks, and according to the timeline above, we've been waiting for 3 weeks and 5 days...not too bad! I'm VERY excited about the process...Ally said that it shouldn't be at the Embassy for more than a month, before it heads to Kyrgyzstan, so...that means that our little Emma docs may be in her country at the beginning of November!!! Wouldn't that be lovely? Here's praying for everyone who ends up touching this dossier and getting it to where it needs to be and doing what needs to be done!!


  1. Congratulations on your progress. Here is hoping everything keeps moving at the speed it is moving. Maybe a referral before the end of the year???

  2. What a BEAUTIFUL thing to read!! I'm so excited to see this progress being made for you!!

  3. AWESOME!!! What a Happy Thanksgiving this will be ---just to know that all the documents will be in country. Each little step leads to those major hurdles! Great news! Isn't it amazing that one day far in the future all of the preparing and waiting will be a memory. Congratulations, I am so excited for you and John.
