I've been busy filling out paperwork for our dossier (fancy name for adoption papers). Yesterday, we all took a trip to the Sheriff's Office so Nathaniel and I could have our fingerprints done. The kids had a good time with that. They liked watching us get fingerprinted, and the officers gave them coloring books, stickers, suckers, and crayons. It didn't take long, and the kids were sufficiently charmed into behaving, so it went really well. Malachi wants to be a police officer (as of now), so he was particularly interested. The officer encouraged him and let him feel his badge. He got a jr badge sticker just like it. He was pretty quiet there, but I could tell by his eyes that he was very happy.
Our next step is the first homestudy visit. Also, we're doing some parent education online and such. That will be on-going for a few months. We are moving forward!
