Things are moving along, last week I had my medicals done and on Saturday I had the final meeting with my social worker. My homestudy is just about complete and once she submits the draft to the adoption agency I will submit my I-600 form to US Immigration Services. This will be the last form I am waiting for to complete my paperwork. Everything has slowed down a little for me now, I have done everything I can do up to this point, in a few weeks I will have more to do but timing is important on the paperwork so I wait.

Today I got good news, when I go to Kazakhstan I can take my laptop. This is something that is relatively new, it seems that the hotel or apartment where I will be staying now has internet access so it will be better for me to communicate with you and the doctors I need to communicate with in the US.

So now it's April 1, 2007, I have been quite busy. I have been fingerprinted twice and cleared by New York State, the FBI, and I have received my child abuse clearance, I created my Home Study Autobiography, I have filled out more questionaires than you can count, I have had the first two meetings with my social worker, I have been interviewed by a psychiatrist who has approved me to be an adoptive parent, I finally received my passport, I sent out documents to be notarized, I have taken, tested and passed the required ten hours of Hague Accrediation education for adoptive parents, I have received my recommendation letters (special thanks to those of you who took the time to write these for me), and I have created the first draft of my Dossier documents for review by CHI. Much more work to do in the coming weeks, I am trying to get the paperwork aspect of this done as quickly as possible. I'll keep you posted.
