We have officially set up an adoption headquarters in our house! We have always had this little nook off of our bedroom by our bathroom that we have NEVER known what to do with and it has always been under used …. NOT anymore! It is now ADOPTION HEADQUARTERS as we like to call it.
Here is my document check list that is taped to my desk. I will live and breath by this for the next few months. Everything that I need for our dossier is in here. It tells me exactly how many copies of each item I need. It tells me if that item needs to be notarized or translated to French. This will become our life!
he will enjoy these pictures when he is older…to see how hard you worked to bring him home.
You are so stinkin’ cute! 🙂 LOVE IT!
Awesome! I had a checklist, too. Organization is key.
I also had a column for expense that way I could keep track of everything’s cost, a column for contact info of each procedure (if applicable) and a column for date completed. I especially liked the latter because I could see my progress.
Congratulations on being “paper pregnant”! 🙂 God bless!
Holy COW you’re so organized!
Hi my name is Alyssa I am the wife of Revrock, our husbands are blog friends and he showed me your blog and I was sympathizing with you and your adoption headquarters! I cannot believe the paperwork that it takes to adopt internationally! I will pray for you because I know how stressful and overwhelming it is! Someday I will start up my blog and we can be blog friends too! Happy paperworking!
