Another important number :)

Another exciting email from our family coordinator!! Here it is:

Dear Families,

Your authenticated dossier will be mailed to Ethiopia today! I will also mail your photocopies of the authentication pages today.

As you track your dossier, please keep a couple of things in mind. First of all, do not be worried if the package makes stops in European or other countries for long periods of time. This is normal, and I've seen this happen often. Also, when the FedEx office in Ethiopia receives packages for our in-country staff representative, they call him to pick up the package rather than deliver it to his office. Because the FedEx office is not in close proximity to our staff member's office, it often takes him a few days to pick up the package. If you see notes that the package has arrived in Ethiopia but not been picked up, this is why.

Congratulations on the completion of this portion of your adoption process! If you have questions or concerns during the waiting period, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Hi Caldwells!
Our dossier was sent to ET on Friday too! We got the same email from Duni, and I was wondering who else was in that batch. How exciting! Maybe we will travel together.
