We are currently working on getting together our dossier.  This is a collection of documents that we need to send to Colombia to get their approval and enter the waiting list.  

So far, this is what we need to collect:

  • Home Study - Received, needs Apostille
  • FBI Clearance for each adoptive parent. - Sent today to FBI!!  Yes!! It may take a couple of weeks to have it back.
  • Birth certificate of each adoptive parent (long form) - Getting Nancy's Apostille in LA; Talley's gets Apostille in Austin.
  • Marriage certificate (long form) - Needs to get Apostille.
  • Employment letter for each adoptive parent (if applicable). Waiting for HR to give them to us to have them notarized and Apostille.
  • Physician letter for each adoptive parent - Should arrive on the mail next week, then needs to gets Apostille.
  • Psychological assessment of the couple or single adoptive parent - Waiting for psychologist to finish the report, notarized and Apostille. .
  • Name affidavit - explaining that I'm the same person with maiden and married last name. Needs notary and Apostille.

  • We are waiting to have all the documents together and notarized to go to the Secretary of State and authenticate the notary signature (that is Apostille). So right now, there is nothing else that we can do about the dossier, we are waiting in everybody else to get back to us.

    In another hand, I (Nancy) found that we are able to get our fingerprints done for FREE in our office!!!  And the Administrative Assistance will notarized all our documents there too...FREE!  That saves us trips to the bank and money!!!!

    Wow... today is a good day :-)
