It's the regularly scheduled blogger here! Just wanted to give a quick update to say that our dossier arrived unharmed via Fed-Ex to Florida and our Case Manager had no comments on it. This is really good news, as it means we do not have to re-do any paperwork. She will be sending it to Ukraine where it will take 3-4 weeks to be translated, then wait to be submitted to the SDA (adoption office in Ukraine). We're told 3-12 months, but other families seem to have been waiting longer than that 12 month time frame. Of course, they dealt with program shut-downs & reached quotas for 2007. We hope that doesn't happen to us!! Hopefully our wide age-range we have requested will speed us up - but who really knows?! It's a strange feeling to know that someone in Ukraine is finally going to be seeing our dossier, it just makes this that much more real!! I wish there was something we could do to put us on the top of that waiting list, but I know that's not possible! We keep thinking it will happen this Fall - I hope we are right!
