Just minutes ago, we received an email attaching two of the three documents that we need before our file can be shipped off to Nairobi for the processing of the kids' visas: we got a translation of the Ethiopian court's adoption decree; and we got copies of the kids' passports. We're still waiting for both kids' new birth certificates, which I'm hoping to receive in the next few days. I can hardly wait for that document, because it's the one which notes Geoff and me as the children's parents.
Once we receive the birth certificates, our agency ships our file from Addis to Nairobi (which is where Canada's High Commission is located), and then the real wait for visas begins.
This is a definite step in the right direction, and it's thrilling to have concrete proof that we passed court almost three weeks ago. Yay!!
