We thought we had finished all of the process work needed to complete our dossier. We thought we were ready to send everything off to our agency and then to Honduras as soon as approval came from USCIS. Today brought us a new hurdle to jump in the dossier process. This is one of the problems with being one of the first few families in a new program with a foreign country. The Honduran government has added the requirement of a series of pictures to be added to the dossier - no problem, we can do that quickly. Also, they are requiring that all prospective adopting parents undergo a thorough psychological evaluation. We received some referrals from our agency, so now it is just a matter of making an appointment and getting this evaluation added to our dossier.
We did get some good news...we received our first report of donations made to Lifesong for Orphans for the Both Hands Project. So far, friends and family have donated $1076.92. Thank you to all who have given of themselves to help us with the expenses of our adoption.
