Making progress! We have reached a big step in the process this week. Yesterday we received our paperwork from the judge and we are certified to adopt in the state of Arizona. We were at a standstill until we had that, so now we can move forward.
We have filled out our I-600A form which goes to the U.S Citizen Immigration Services department at the national level. Basically that just lets them know that we are going to be adopting internationally. They must approve and clear us on that level. We are able to mail that right away now that we have the judge's paperwork.
What we are still waiting on is our passports and letters from various places for the dossier. Once we get those we will be able to mail that off as well!
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6
