Whew - this shit's bananas!

As my lovely husband likes to say. The notary seal from the home study and license should be fine - it's been approved in the past and we will send it up for authentication as is. Everything is coming along nicely. I got a call from our State Police to tell me that they are overnighting me the Good Conduct Letter. I got a call from Homeland Security saying that they are only working on June fingerprints now (we got ours done on 7/6 - the baby's birthday) but she would put us to the top of the pile since we have our referral (expected arrival - within 2 weeks). Our home study agency is getting us the missing paperwork that they are holding. We got the medical reports and blood work back (to my untrained eye- everyone looks ok) and I have sent it off to the doctor's office for a report to be issued. I have to say again how much I love my agency. If anyone is looking for an agency, please email me and I will be happy to discuss them with you. They have been wonderful. Even when I was bugging the home study agency (a division of the adoption agency) they were very patient with me. Marc and I are just so lucky.

    I accidentally found this webpage (through a link of yours on another site) - I hope you don't mind. I just want to send you a HUGE CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I don't know the entire story - but I can see that you are adopting a baby very soon - and I just want to wish you and Marc a HUGE mazel tov and congratulations - I am so excited for you!

    We still need to get together - and not in the SuperFresh! (that should give more of a hint as to who I am) - well, that and my name :)

    Congratulations to you and Marc a thousand times over!

    Congratulations Foxxy! I'm so happy for you!


  5. Oh gosh Julie - you must be going bonkers!
    I just got my first BC ready to send off for authentication today. Thought I'd try my hubby's first since it is the only item that has to go to another state.....kind of a test for the mind. I can't imagine doing ALL the paperwork at once. It will shit bananas!
    I am so excited for you!

  6. That is wonderful!! I'm glad everything is going so smoothly.

  7. Oh how I wish that you didnt have to do all this paperwork and bureaucratic bullshit, and you could just have your little boy now. NOW NOW NOW dammit!

    It must be like waiting for Christmas, times ten-to-minus1-plus-infinity.

  8. I hope they can hurry along your fingerprints, you must be jumping out of your skin with anticipation!

  9. Julie,
    Would you mind sending me the agency info? Thank you so much in advance, and congrats again! Things may be nuts right now, but will all be soooooo worth it very soon!

  10. Hey Julie - congratulations on your son's imminent arrival - I'm very pleased for you.

  11. I tried to post to your last blog entry and it wouldn't go through--not sure what was up with that. But just wanted to say how happy I am that a little boy is soon going to be living at your house. Congratulations!!! It is also very refreshing to hear that someone is having a good experience with competent people. Kind of unusual these days.

  12. Whew is right!!! Sounds like the paperchase is coming together nicely!!!! YAY!

  13. This is all moving along so fast! Can you believe it? Before you know it, you'll be holding your baby boy!!
