I don't think I ever introduced myself formally though I have been reading and sharing with a lot of you. I'm Jess (38), DH (41) and I are one document away from completing the dossier for an international adoption (Peru). We have been married for almost 17 years and have a 15 year old son. We have been TTC for 12 years with IUIs and IVFs under our belt. We made the decision to adopt December 2013 and so we have had a year of paperwork to make that happen. We have the added headache of being a military family so every paperwork and police clearance seems to take months since we are talking 11 moves, 8 states and 3 deployments make it harder for the government to give us the ok 8-} Well we are finally nearing the end and we are excited for the next step.
Cue the vent: Well now that our part is done we are waiting for the agency to do their part (document translation, document verification etc). I hate waiting especially since they don't give us any updates and we do have some documents that need to be sent to the adoption country before they expire and we have to redo. Question: Is it ok to call the agency once a week if we have not heard from them just to make sure everything is still good? I don't want to sound like a looney to them but I also want them to know that we are anxious.
Thanks to this site and all of you I am learning so much about this process and not biting my fingernails as much these days.
