I'm back from vacation and a much needed break from adoption paperwork! I worked on getting a whole bunch of stuff done before we left and got some bad news. My home study says my background check was clear but my state background check shows this stupid theft I was accused of when I was 18. At first I freaked out that they wouldn't let me adopt, but they will, we just need to adjust the home study to say that. It makes me so mad because this stupid thing follows me whereever I go! I opened a bottle of soda in the grocery store I worked at and the gung ho wantabee cop accused me of stealing it! A .50 soda, seriously! The judge dropped it because it was so stupid, but it will always be on my record!
So needless to say I was ready for a break from paperwork. But when we got home last night we saw that our I171H form, our USCIS approval is here! This is the last big scary step. Makayla is really going to be ours, its so real! I know the judge in her country is not going to say no. I've been told that no judge has ever said no. that means she's ours! Oh I can't even believe it! Now just a few more things to have notarized this week, and our paperwork is on its way and we wait for a date to go get her!
Remember the MP3 player give away is still going on. $10.00 for one entry and $25.00 for 3 entries. Use the top chipin on the side!
