3rd Home Study Meeting Done!

We just finished up our 3rd Home Study meeting with Amber. It went really well! I was able to give her lots of notarized documents and we finished up our interviews.  We had a couple interview today and then Ryan finished his personal interview.  We were a little "scared" about the interview process from what people had told us...but it wasn't bad at all.  We were both pleasantly surprised by how easy it actually was.

Amber will now complete our home study report and plans to have it to us by next week.  We will then be ready to send our Immigration forms to the government. This process takes a long time, we are talking 60-90+ days of waiting for someone to complete our forms.  Once we receive these forms back, we will send our dossier to AWAA. We do have most all of our dossier complete.  We lack only a couple of items which I will get ready this week.  So the waiting time has begun.  We will wait for our home study report, then for our immigration documents, then for our authentication documents, then for AWAA to translate and approve, then for the Rwandan government to approve and match.

I know that this road will be long but am ready to start the waiting. Every day that we wait just brings us that much closer to our child being home!  Thanks again for your prayers and support during our journey! We appreciate all of you!

Hi there. My name is Tina and I found your blog through the Vincents blog. I also adopted from Rwanda last year...only I didn't use an agency, so my process was slightly different, but very much the same. Just wanted to say Hi and let you know that my husband and I pray for Rwanda adoption families everyday so it's nice to come across a few of those faces online from time to time.

God bless you as you start your amazing adventure!
