Doing the paperwork shuffle :)

As we prepared to be eligible to be back in line again for the adoption process with the new job firmly under our belt, I grossly underestimated the amount of paperwork that was going to need to be done! AGH!

So, we have the two documents that I knew we would need (new health insurance, new job letter), now I'm working on updated child abuse clearance forms, background checks, bank statements, etc... :) Ahh the joys of paperwork. Because it's been more than a year since those documents were turned in, we have to do them again... For the 3rd time!!! (I'm choosing joy. I'm choosing joy. I'm choosing joy.)

tick, tock, tick, tock... I'm a little glad that October is really slow for India adoptions, as it's currently allowing us time to get all of the paperwork back and get our homestudy update done before things get moving again... :)

I stole this picture from somewhere else online- just to remind me WHY i'm doing all this paperwork. :)

YAY! Paperwork is good! One step closer to your baby girl being in your arms!

Re-doing paperwork is my least favorite adoption-related hobby! :o) But I'm glad there's one good reason October is the "slow season" -- you'll be back in line in no time!

Oh, I'm so glad to see this post! I look forward to seeing your family of 5!

Well, I guess the paperwork filling out goes faster ON THE THIRD TIME!!! We've had to do it too. Thankfully, I xerox everything so it makes it easier to copy my answers from the first time!

Yay for getting going again!

So happy to hear that you are working your way back in line. Re-doing paperwork is not much fun, but at least it is paperwork that has a blessing at the end of it :-) Looking forward to watching another adoption story unfold.
