Ghana bound!

It’s official. We are moving on to Ghana. I’m so excited about the Ghana and about our sweet little girl! So, next steps:

Our dossier for Ethiopia was done and ready for our I-171H from USCIS. From there, we were going to have to get a couple things sealed by the state and then have everything authenticated in D.C.

Ghana changes:
Nothing has to be sealed and nothing has to be notarized so, we save some time there, however, I did have to edit a couple of documents and get the notarized as well as provide some photos of our home. So, yesterday I took care of most of it and I’m hoping we’ll be able to get a new doctor’s letter in the next day or so.

Our home study is being edited to say “Ghana” instead of “Ethiopia” and we should have that by Monday. Once we have it, we will apply to have the change made with USCIS while we wait on the fingerprints.

Meanwhile, in Ghana, our agency contact is finding out more about Little Miss and starting the paperwork to request a court date. if all goes well, we’ll be headed to court in Ghana the minute that we get our I-171H from USICS which should be in the next couple of months.

I can’t believe we might be headed to get our child about the same time that we would have just gotten on the wait list for Ethiopia. The family at #2 on the Ethiopia list has been on the list for 4 months – the last 2 they haven’t moved at all.
