Just sent off some paperwork today. Included was an adoption agreement, fee schedule, release form, questionnaire and a home study agreement (since we're doing our home study through Children's Hope). Now we wait for final approval, then things will really start moving!
Oh! Also, Wednesday we learned that there has been a change in the Ethiopian adoption process. All prospective adoptive families must now travel to Addis Ababa for the Federal Court hearing before your adoption can be approved. This means that we have to travel to Ethiopia twice now instead of just once to go pick up our child. This also means MORE MONEY! I'm half overwhelmed by this news and half excited, because we'll get to meet Arthur a little sooner and have a few more days to experience the culture there.
