Brief update in the adoption world. I walked in and showed those cops who was boss and they all scrambled, typed, sealed my document and I was on my way out the door in 10 minutes flat.
It went something like that, or at least that's how I'm choosing to remember it :). Bottom line is, we got the document!! We've also successfully jumped several hurdles. They were ugly jumps, but we jumped them nonetheless. Our paperwork is almost finished and we'll now wait for our home study at the end of the Nov. After that, it's more paperwork and red tape.
We had a cop friend come over to our house today and help with getting fingerprinted. While here, he told us he was going to look around a bit. We nervously threw small talk his way. He seemed satisfied, but it was a tense few minutes. Having him walk around just made us feel nervous, even though we haven't done anything. We tell people, we've got 4 kids, we don't have time to make trouble.
We've been studying Ethiopia these last two weeks of home school. So tonight we finished up with our Ethiopian meal. We got to eat with our hands, so that's always a good formula for the kids enjoying a meal.
