We took 16 documents to be notarized to our bank yesterday. Our usual trusty notary was busy, so another lady notarized our documents. It went perfectly! I've heard stories about notaries messing up, but yet again no re-dos necessary! A huge relief, to be sure.
There are just a handful of documents we need left. They are biggies, of course, like our home study and I-171H. Now we're hoping to be there by mid-August for our first trip. I am chomping at the bit!!
Hopefully USCIS (immigration) will get our home study soon (this week?) so we can get our FBI fingerprint appointments underway. Once we get our approval, we'll make the drive out to Tallahassee to have everything apostilled and immediately shipped to Darya's country! It just can't come soon enough.
Oh, and by the way, tomorrow is her 2nd birthday!! It will be her last without a family and next year she'll have a big ole cake!
