Let the Paperwork Begin

I received a packet yesterday evening containing a great deal of information and paperwork that needs to be completed in order to adopt Milana. I must admit that it sure is a lot to digest! With that said I'm already trying to figure out what I can get completed and when. There are about 5 or 6 forms that need to be signed, notarized, checked, and sent off immediately - I'm talking yesterday :) So I am working on making that happen. Once I can check that off as sent I can look and see what I can tackle next.

One of the most important things I need to get done (aside from the above mentioned forms) is to have Chris get his passport application in. That is super important. There are tons of forms that ask for our passport numbers and we obviously don't have that part of the process done as of yet. I must admit he'd have had it done had I not gone w/o him to get mine. It was sort of an impulse to just go when I had some free time.

I have to admit when I looked at the packet I was initially feeling a little overwhelmed. Then I remembered what my friend Kristin said about something. She said it wouldn't be a worthwhile endeavor if it wasn't hard. And of course she is right.
