After four months, our dossier is complete! Before mailing it off, we made a quick trip to Frankfort for the state seal, which my sweet L referred to as a gold medal. (I don’t know about a medal, but it is quite the accomplishment, as any adoptive parent will tell you.) So here I am at the Capitol building, excited to be wrapping up this stage of the process, and excited to not have to carry this file folder around with me anymore.
It was a perfect summer day, and despite riding around in the car all morning, the kids were in particularly pleasant moods. Maybe it had something to do with the suckers they received at the bank and the county clerk and the secretary of state office, but I’ll take it.
