a home has been purchased

We FINALLY found a place to call home! Good thing too because we have to be out of our house in less than a month! It is pretty much everything that we wanted - even a fenced yard for the dogs!! It is not a ranch like we wanted, but it is a nice tri-level. We are very excited about this house - it will be a great place to bring our son home to! It is very close to a couple of our close friends, but only 30 minutes away from where we currently live. We will both be closer to work, which will really save on gas money!!
Now that the house has been purchased, I need to focus again on getting our dossier updated for travel. We have our fingerprinting redone tomorrow morning at the USCIS Department, so I have at least gotten that scheduled in the chaos! I plan on taking one updated copy for the facilitator, and one for us if needed. What are some other documents that we might be asked for by a judge? I almost forgot about copies of tax returns.

Very nice!! Is it where you said you would probably move?

Dont forget to update the paperwork for adoption credit from the county!

For the judge the dossier will be fine. Have a copy of your new home lease/purchase just in case you go to Dnipro- they always seem to want it.

Congrats! It must feel great to have this major purchase done!

Good luck on the paperwork re-do's.

Yay!! These next 2 months will fly by and before you know it you'll be waving good-bye to that new house and on your way to Ukraine. Good luck with the move!

Don't worry about the tax returns. We didn't take any with us and no one ever asked to see them. :) One less thing to worry about!

Hi Staci, Thanks for your comments! Congratulations to you for your house and appointment. Very exciting. I recall seeing your blog when we started our HS in July. It's amazing how long it takes, but then time seems to fly by as well. I grew up in Centerville and I recognize the Irongate sign in the front yard. My family still lives there. We are actually traveling there this weekend for Memorial Day. If you're close to Centerville and are around I'd love to meet. We will have our son with us that turns 4 this weekend and is from Ukraine! All the best to you! Stefanie

Nice house! We, too, know the pains of moving. We can finally park in the garage :)

Congratulations on both the house and the upcoming adoption! Remember to update the homestudy. We wish you all the best!
