Home Study Update...


Today we received an email stating that our home study has been approved!!!!

We are really excited. Now what? Our agency, CWA, will review the home study and then our social worker will send us the documents that we need from her for our dossier. This includes her social worker's license, the agency's license, the home study and a letter stating that we have been approved. As soon as we get this we will send it to North Carolina (CWA agency) to make sure that we completed everything. Once it is approved, we will send the dossier to Washington DC to a courier to take it the US Embassy and the Ethiopian Embassy to get it authenticated. From there, we will instruct them to send it to CWA in North Carolina. As soon as they receive it, it will be reviewed one final time and then sent to Ethiopia to be translated to Amharic. This is when we will officially be waiting for our referral.
