Today marks 25 months of official waiting.

I marked the occasion by driving to Annapolis and back to get one of our dossier do-over documents certified by the Secretary of State and by obtaining a certified check to pay the authentication fees at the Ethiopian Embassy. At least our new dossier should be going out for authentication by the end of this week and we’ll soon have that out of the way.

    25 sucks. But, if it makes you feel any better, we got our referral the week after we finished our dossier do-over. Here’s to a repeat!

  15. Joanna says:

    I think the waiting should end at 25. Waiting anxiously for good news!

  16. One amazing child is waiting for you at the end of this interminable wait. I truly hope 25 months will mark the end of this stage of waiting..
