Exciting news- as you may have guessed from the title, we received our 171-H form from CIS today. For those of you who aren't familiar with all the adoption lingo, the 171 form is the permission from the U.S. government to adopt an orphan from another country. This is a big step in our process!

Of course, getting the 171 sent us on an evening of dossier work - finishing the new forms, making copies, stapling forms together. We are looking to travel to Columbus on Friday to get our state certifications, then send the dossier documents off to the Vietnamese Consulate for their authentication.

In other news... We had a great time with the other adoptive parents we met last night. Janie and I both had a great time and we look forward to seeing everybody again soon... tomorrow is our rescheduled appointment for travel vaccinations at the Board of Health - I can't wait! I will update everybody on how it goes in case you need to have it done.
