6:40 am- wake up and head to the capital to get the last apostille. It is still dark outside and feels like 5:40 because of daylight savings.
7:00 am- heading up the hill to the capital. Coming over the top of the hill in the dark morning, seeing the capital lit up gave me this rush of energy and excitement as I realized this was my last step in the dossier
7:05 am - walk into Lt. Governor's office, planning on paying the expedited same day fee and coming back in a few hours, but instead the lady did it for me right then!!! (still had to pay the higher fee but didn't have to make another trip)
7:20 am- walk out the doors of the capital as the sky is getting light holding the final documents in hand for our dossier!!!!!!
These documents are now in route to Kareen's country!!!!!!!
Documents that have been our top priority over the last few months
Documents that have taken all sorts of running around, appointments, notaries, signatures, stress and worry
Documents that our children have prayed for "please bless that mom and dad can get the fliers done quickly so we can get Kareen"
Documents that will allow Kareen's file to be pulled from the system and officially start the legal process in EE
Documents that say to her country that KAREEN IS WORTHY OF A FAMILY
Documents that say KAREEN, YOUR FAMILY IS COMING FOR YOU
Documents that will change one little girls life FOREVER!!!!!
