Good News !!!
Well I am doing a happy dance today! We have officially been approved by Central Authority, and they are about to sign all our documents and send them off to the Adoption Agency for the final part, before they get sent to Russia.
It is so nice to finally be at this stage of the journey, it will all start moving rather fast now, and we are getting closer. I am starting Russian language this Saturday which should be interesting!
I think after we have our homestudy notarized, it takes about a month of it being in Russia being translated etc, before they start finding our special someone.
Stay tuned next week I should know more then. We are attending the official Russian adoption travel seminar next Friday as well, because we are getting closer to that stage.
