Yes, finally our dossier is on it's way to Kenya!! There was a wee bit of a delay as the agency was waiting for a Hague letter from the Ministry. I wasn't even aware of this step... but there you have it, it's done. I have a tracking number and I'll be popping in updating you on it's travels - just like the Santa doppler! lol

Another fantastic piece of news is that a fellow adoptive friend - Tracy, just found out last night that her dossier was approved! This is most incredible news for her, as her journey has been long one. It is also great news for us, as it means that the NAC is through it's backlog! Technically speaking, ours should be submitted to the NAC in early April and seen in the third week of April. We could get notification as early as May 3rd!! (A nice Mother's day gift perhaps?)Then it's all quickly downhill from there... referral within 60 days and an almost immediate move!!

And on that note... I think I will move over and try to update that mammoth list!!

Exciting! I hope everything carries on smoothly!

Candice said...

Woohoo!!! Excellent news. :)

Yeah! The idea of an almost immediate move would scare the crap out of me. I hope you have a "sort of plan" to deal with that! How exciting though. Is it bad to admit a little envy of living in a different place for an entire year? I keep trying to convince my hubby to move overseas, but so far, to absolutely no avail.

That's great news! So exciting when you finally see movement.

Thanks ladies!
Jess... it absolutely scares the crap out of me.. pets, home to rent out, homeschooling.. many details! However, we love moving and change and know it will be the best year of our lives - so we are very much looking forward to it. ;)
