Yesterday was our Psychological Evaluation. We drove to Doylestown first thing in the morning yesterday to begin the evaluation. The psychologist greeted us and was very nice. The interview began, and that portion was somewhat brief. Then came the questionnaires. Alicia went to a separate office to begin answering a series of questionnaires, and I began working on my pile in the other office. The first few were simple...done in a few minutes and nothing too out of the ordinary. Then came the multi-page series of questions that seemed incredibly repetitive and somewhat depressing. The final questionnaire was a 567 question SAT style evaluation. It took me almost an hour and a half to work my way through this series of ten questions asked 56 different ways. I am still seeing dots drawn with a number two pencil when I close my eyes. All in all, it was a somewhat painless process, and the psychologist is trying to expedite the process for us. All of our paperwork is waiting for this completed evaluation.
Earlier this week, we received our approval from USCIS, so that step is complete. Alicia is planning to take our dossier to Living Hope Adoption Agency today, so that when the psychologist sends the completed evaluation to them, the dossier is ready to begin the authentication process.
Our Both Hands Project continues to come together. We have had two more companies sponsor the project: Ace Hardware has provided us with some supplies, and Buso Landscaping is providing some services. Friends and family of our team has already donated over $1700. We have been blown away by everyone's generosity, and so thankful for all of the support.
