We finally completed our dossier and it is on its way to our agency! While this doesn't really change anything about our process or getting a referral, it is such a relief to get that thing out of my house. With two little Tasmanian devils (formerly know as Chipmunk and Monkey) at my house that tend to destroy anything that gets in their way, I was anxious anytime they were within 10 feet of my beautiful pile of paperwork. I don't think I realized how worried I was about something happening to it until the other night. We were having a terrible storm with hurricane-strength wind that was sounded like it going to blow the house down. I woke up at 2:00 in the morning thinking that a tornado was approaching. I'm emabarassed to admit that my first thought was not to make sure my boys were safe and okay but to make sure that my dossier didn't get blown away. Yes, I realize how sad that is and I won't be nominating myself for any mother-of-the-year awards anytime soon. So I was thrilled to hand that baby over to Stu this morning and say goodbye to it. I have no idea what happens to it now; I'm just thrilled that it is out of my hands.
Of course, this also means that we are truly just waiting at this point which is so hard. We've been waiting for 7 weeks(yeah!), but I've been busy putting the dossier together so it has flown by. Now my work is finished and I think I'll be obsessing over the wait every single day. Thank goodness I have my two rays of sunshine (okay, three rays of sunshine if you include Stu) to keep me occupied!
