2nd Trimester --Dossier sent to Gladney

Today I sent all 19 authenticated documents (2 extra cause of the multiple employment), my family pics, my photos and of course money to Gladney. It was hard to let it out of my sight. I have worked so hard getting everything together and now I'm entrusting it to FED EX?  But I parted with it.  

The first trimester is the paperchase
The 2nd trimester is the wait
The 3rd Trimester is the referral and court period
Labor is the court date 
Travel is the birth.

and of course, another happy dance as the count down begins... well um maybe I'd better start counting after I hear it from Gladney.  But I can still dance!



  1. Congrats! Here's hoping your 2nd trimester doesn't last too long.

  2. I was so nervous to send off my dossier.... I insured it for $800:)

  3. Cute video! ;-)

  4. Congratulations on your progress Robbin! You have a great BLOG yourself:-) Love your "Single Mama Drama" entry! I never dreamed that I would be 37, single and adopting my first child... and to tell you the truth,,, now I understand why God put me here! I could not be happier with my decision to adopt from Ethiopia and my 'single' life!
    Well, here is to your hopefully fast and smooth journey!!!!

  5. Congrats on this HUGE milestone!

  6. Robbin this is exciting. One step closer. Thanks for your comments on my blog.

  7. Congrats!! For starters, I couldn't believe how expensive it was to FedEx my dossier. It cost as much as a plane ticket, practically. I mean, dayum... I expected it to fly cargo, not first class.

    On to the wait!

  8. Congrats!!! This is a huge step. I was thrilled when our dossier went out the door. You will be on waitlist in no time.
