We keep on going...

I haven't posted in a while because there's not much to say really. We continue to have some paperwork trickle in and get us baby steps closer to completing our home study. Provided our doctors can complete our medical forms in a reasonable time (namely, MY doc's office) we should be completed with our home study by Dec. 10th. Once that's completed we'll dig further into our dossier paperwork. Kentucky is one of the few states that requires documents to be certified in the county they were notarized in before the documents can be apostilled (Apostille: the legalization of a document for international use under the terms of the 1961 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalization for Foreign Public Documents) We are hoping to be completed with our dossier at the end of February. I have added links to other families blogs who are adopting from Ukraine. Some are currently traveling in country and it's quite interesting to read what they are going through. I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving - Christmas is right around the corner!

I just found your site on another Ukraine adoption blog and just wanted to come by and say hi! ;) Welcome to this wonderful journey! There is nothing like it - but the rewards are endless!

Hey!
Don't let your doctor's office slow things down. Most of the time you can get records within 5-10 days. We are always gathering records here at work, so remember sometimes you have to be a PEST to get what you need. I know you will be persistent!
LOve Ya, Momma

I came across your site and wanted to let you know we're another family traveling soon. Feel free to follow along our blog.
We're also hoping for a younger child or children (under age 4)

hey there! Glad you found our blog. I am so glad to hear of another family looking to adopt in Ukraine. There are so many children here and it is sad to see them all.

I will follow your story!
