And for those of you who will surely ask- YES we did have to redo our dossier. Luckily, our homestudy transferred, but we had to completely start over on our dossier since all the documents needed to be notarized and certified originals. Amazingly, we rounded up all our documents within 2 days!! LOTS of running around (Drew even drove to South Bend one evening to pick up our homestudies rather than having them mailed) and LOTS of notarizing (thankfully we know several notaries who went above and beyond to help us out). Long story short, we have been on the waiting list with our new agency for several weeks and couldn't be more excited!! Our new agency doesn't give out numbers, so this will be a little different, but we know we started out at about #10 on the list and expect that we have moved up slightly since getting on the list (very exciting since we were #52 when we made the decision to switch agencies). We were told we could expect a referral in 2-6 months, so we are anxiously awaiting that phone call!! Thank you to everyone who continue to be a support and encouragement throughout this emotional process! We appreciate all your prayers for our baby girl and look forward to introducing you to her once we get to see her beautiful face!
