Contracts and stuff

The contracts have been read and signed. We filled out all the other paperwork that the adoption agency sent. We got a fed-ex account. The agency recommended that so we could expedite all the paperwork - both ways. We have rustled up 700.00 for the adoption agency program fee. Everything is all ready to be packed up in a fed-ex envelope and will be put in the box on Tuesday. Wednesday morning they will all arrive at the agency. By this time next week, we should be "officially" in the program and the ball will be rolling. I have also sent in a request for our marriage license. The nice, actually very nice, woman from the Lyon County courthouse was most helpful in getting that process going. Most everywhere i looked online required that we notarize the request, but she told me to put it to her attention and no notary would be required. I guess request made direct the courthouse do not require notary. At least that saves us 20.00. The request for the birth certificates will not be so easy though. Vital Check is where we are ordering them from, and of course they require notary. I believe, since 9/11, all birth certificate request require that now. I believe that the paper pregnancy has officially begun. Am I showing? :) -- Stephen

Congratulations on getting your agency application in!

We did not need our request for birth certificates to be notarized - we requested them directly from the county clerks [in the counties we were born, of course!]. But, we're in NY state, may be different where you are...
best wishes,
