So, we had a minor set back on Friday when I took our dossier in to be checked by our social worker and our program coordinator. There were a few problems with some of the documents - one being that my notary's stamp was blurry. I was able to fix that by having her re-stamp them (lightly) so that the numbers can be clearly read. I also had to have our doctor's notes rewritten and Kevin's employment letter changed a teeny bit. But, hopefully I will have everything ready to go to be checked tomorrow and then maybe state certified on Tuesday. I'm praying that they will certify the documents while I wait.
I was feeling a little discouraged about the dossier problems so I went baby shopping. :) I have tentatively picked out some bedding, but it is so hard to do since we're not sure if we're having a girl or boy, one or two! I was looking at Pottery Barn Kids, but couldn't decide on any that would be cute if we had one of each. I did find these at Target and they're pretty cute:
They are also somewhat inexpensive in case we do have two. I'm still stuck on what color to paint the room - I was thinking pale yellow, but now I'm unsure again. I'm still hung up on the boy/girl thing.
The main problem I'm having is picking a car seat. This weekend CHI had a class for adoptive parents and one of the things they covered was car seat safety. I had been told that the Britax was the best and was considering getting those, but someone spoke up about how the Britax did not fit well in all cars, notably the Subaru models. I drive a Subaru. Not to mention, they suggested getting one for each car so we wouldn't have to move them. Well, we might be getting two for each car and the Britax starts at $200. So, now I'm on the hunt again. If anyone out there has any advice - please let me know!!
