I need a nap today!:) We are trying so hard to work ahead and do what we can on our end. However, I have learned that there is a reason that everything has a specific sequence, things can get overwhelming quickly. We have just started our home study (yippee) and have taken care of most of the paperwork already (release forms, legal documents, family picture, etc). Yesterday, we also got our BCI and FBI fingerprints and tomorrow the Fire Marshall is coming to inspect our home and sign off on that. While we are working on home study items, I'm also trying to work ahead on our dossier. I think I need to slow down though, we still haven't received our agency package with dossier guidelines, medical forms, etc., education requirements (for the home study). Right now, I'm trying to piece it together based on other blogs. Although we are just beginning, I already feel so grateful for all of the bloggers who have so beautifully documented their journeys! I was able to compile a good list from Julie's archives (Finding Little Pfalzer). Thank you Julie!:)
I am confused by the apostilling process, and even little things like...do our home photos need to be a certain size (5X7, 8X10)? Also, is the biometrics fingerprinting (for the I800A form), the same process as what we did yesterday for the FBI and BCI? I am sure all of those details will be covered once I actually read the guidelines when they arrive! I have to keep repeating...."patience is a virtue" .:)
Going private soon.....
