I just don't get it!

So Randy and I have been busting out booties to get all our paperwork done for the new agency.   I finished today, minus the doctor visits, and the psychological exam.  Our home study agency has had all the paperwork from our new agency since last Monday, and she said she would have it done by Monday at the latest.  Well she emailed me yesterday, and said that she wasn't finished and there was one form that she has no idea on how to fill out.  She asked me if I knew how to fill it out!  I was like WHAT!?!  That is why you are the home study agency, you are up to date on adoption stuff, not me.  So, it doesn't look like I will get it today either, as I tried to call her and she has been out all day, and I really wanted to go get everything Appostilled tomorrow since Camden has school and I wouldn't have to drag him along with me.  I dragged him all over today and he did so good, I put the kiddo in the car for a 30 minute drive out to the CPA's office, then 20 minutes to downtown, then another 20 minutes to find a parking spot.  Note to self, never go to a government building the day after a holiday, INSANE!  Had to park 6 blocks away, ended up carrying Camden about half of that, the boy is getting BIG!  But after 50 minutes in the Missouri Secretary of State's office, he was DONE!  I think they were done with us also.  We have met our $100 limit in Missouri on Appostile's so I think she kept pushing us back and took care of all the paying people first.  There were plenty of people who came in after us, that left before us.  So now we are at the mercy of the home study agency, hopefully they finish by Friday morning at the earliest, so I can run to Topeka and get our Dossier to California to our new agency.  I wanted it there by Thursday, and we would of had a record Dossier prep, less than two weeks, but we are looking right at two weeks now.  Still pretty fast.  Now if only Kansas would put a cap on their Appostile's. I think I will be writing them probably right around a $500 check when I go!

  1. How frustrating! The apostille thing is enough to make anyone cringe! I had 64 documents for my dossier. The state of CA charges $20 PER DOCUMENT. REALLY ANNOYING. That doesn't even include the cost for notary! UGH.. the cost of paperwork. In court last month, as the judge perused the paperwork, I thought, I wonder if she has any idea the TIME and COST that went into that????

    Anyway, in the end, it will be worth it!
