I was a little caught off guard when I received two e-mails from our agency outlining the directions for this phase of our adoption - Waiting on our Travel Approval. Our agency is absolutely wonderful and was very helpful in giving me clear and concise directions on how to do my paperwork. I just thought I was really done with paperwork. (This is all still very new to us even though we have been paper-chasing for over a year now).
These are the forms we had to fill out:
1. Visa applications
2. I 800 FORM (9 other documents,which I already had, also had to be included)
3. DS230 Form
Just three things right ? Well, there is a lot that goes into these three forms and I was a little overwhelmed by them. I immediately got to work filling out the forms and collecting all my documents, copies of documents and forms last weekend. Thankfully, it was the weekend and I couldn't mail anything until Tuesday ( Monday was a holiday). Every day, I went over and over the forms and directions and every day I found a lot of mistakes that I had made. I got so used to filling out forms for Chuck and me, that filling out forms for Maggie confused me.
I got it all straitened out eventually, and mailed everything off. Now, we just wait for our TA and pray I don't get a call saying I need to redo the forms.
