This is the place where we are have documented the road we have walked in order to adopt our four children from Brazil and the road we are now on as a family. We are keenly aware that adopting is not just a process we've chosen to go through, but part of God's plan for us and for our children. May He be glorified through the process and through our family!

Message From AWAA

We received this message today from Christi, our Family Coordinator. Some good news, and some more work to do. A couple documents need to be fixed up, but the good news is that the agency is processing us along with the others who submitted their dossiers prior to May 31. This is a blessing because families who submit after May 31 will have to pay a new International Program Fee. Since they granted us an extension, we will not have to pay this new fee.

Hi Kim,
In reviewing your dossier there were a few things that need to be amended.
1. The psychologist's license CCOO had a scratch-out. Unfortunantly you'll need to redo this.

2. The power of attorney dates do not match up. It shows that it was completed and notarized on the 21st but then the date for your signatures is the 22nd.
Let me know if you need me to send the originals to you. Otherwise if you want to just complete those 2 pages and send it to me with your I171H you'll be all set.

In regard to the request of the extension, I had already granted that to your family so you all are counted as before the 31st deadline.
God bless,

Christi Hicks
