This afternoon we headed to St. Louis to visit our friendly psychologist. He handled our evaluation back in 2008 when we adopted Slav and Sergei, so he knows the routine. The requirements have changed slightly since our last adoption, but I think we have everything ironed out. He has step-by-step instructions with meticulous detail. We'll pick up the completed documents early next week. Then we can check that off of the list.
The documents we had apostilled a week ago made their way to our agency. Our facilitator said that everything was in order with all of them and went ahead and Fed-Exed them to Vladivostok so that Lana can get started on the translations. The remainder of our documents should be ready to go within the next ten days to two weeks. We're still waiting for state clearances and Clarion's FBI clearance. We're hoping and praying that they arrive in our timeline. It's all optimistic, of course. All things will happen in the Lord's good time. Thanks be to God! We'll keep you posted. Blessings to you all!
