I don't think anyone would ever mistake me for someone who is very organized. We had been waiting....and waiting for our I171H (the last document needed for our dossier) for a few weeks when I decided to go ahead and email our contact to check the status of this much anticipated piece of paper. As I was looking through our paperwork to find the email address and our receipt number for our case, I came across a document that we had received in the mail almost two weeks prior. I noticed at the very bottom in tiny print was written, "I171H". WHAT!!! I've had this important piece of paper in my possession for almost two weeks??? Needless to say, I felt very silly!
After kicking myself and laughing about it the rest of the night, it finally sunk in that we were finished with our paperwork! I spent the next morning making copies and making sure everything was perfect before sending our dossier off to America World that evening. It took us longer than most to finish our paperwork and it has been frustrating at times, but we know that God has a plan and every piece of this adoption puzzle is happening in His time and not ours. He has the perfect little girl waiting for our family and we are so excited to be one step closer to meeting her.
