So, as it turns out, the 2 documents that the NAC said were not there - our government approval and the issue with the citizenship- were indeed. The Kenyan agency still needs to confirm with the NAC on Monday, but we are pretty certain that we will not have to provide anything extra in this regard. They did however want the children to be interviewed by our social worker.
As a precaution, my agency also sent a consent form for the children to sign and be notarized - consenting to the adoption. The lawyer got a good laugh out of that, but then again he was also shocked that it would cost $500 to FedEx this around the world. He was like, "Really!? - $500! Just to courier these 2 papers!?"... and I was like, Really!? - $20 per document just for the 2 seconds it takes you sign your name on them!?
|Consent? Of course we consent!!|
