So I believe we'd mentioned to some of you some time ago that we'd finished getting our paperwork together. That was mostly true. We had gotten all the stuff from all the places -- friends, family, departments of motor vehicles, the FBI -- that we needed to put together the packet of stuff. What we hadn't yet done was gone through and made sure that all our t's were crossed and i's dotted... and we had to put together our financial paperwork to contribute it to the pile.
It was a scary part. I mean, we're in better financial shape than we have been for most of the time we've been together for sure. Maybe the best ever. But it's still scary, figuring out one's net worth, putting together tax forms, etc.
Then, after that, we realized that there was one last thing that needed to be signed in front of a witness, so we went over to Randal's, ordered in Thai, and signed that last form. Then, in a fit of silliness, we asked him to take pictures of us with our paperwork. Maybe Julie will post a photo or two - I think they're pretty cute, us with our goofy smiles on and our stack of stuff.
So then we made copies of everything -- of course, not the reference letters, since they're sealed and signed over the seal -- and packed up the package and sent it all off with the nice FedEx guy who was just getting ready to leave the store with his pile of goodies.
The next day, we got in touch with Anna, our social worker, just to let her know that we'd sent stuff in, and soon we hope to be scheduling our final interviews. I need to go to one more appointment and get a form sent in from my therapist, but that's easily enough accomplished. The point is, we're inching closer all the time!
As soon as we have the next interview scheduled, you'll hear about it!
