Noah's Sub and some Adoption Happiness

After much frustration and impatient waiting, I got the email today that our dossier is being packed up and shipped to Russia by the adoption agency. I can't tell you how relieved and happy I am right now. Between Erich and I, we were so afraid that they were going to find something else wrong with the dossier that needed to be fixed that neither of us has been able to completely relax the past couple weeks.

But it is done now, and the next time I talk to our coordinator should be in a couple months when we receive either an invitation to travel or a referral. The difference is whether or not we know anything about the child we've been matched with before we travel. Some regions give a small amount of information on the child before Trip 1, and others force you to travel blind as they say until you get to Russia where they give you all the available information. There are advantages and disadvantages to both methods and at this point I'm not sure which I would prefer so whatever happens will be fine.

So, now we've taken a big step forward and I really need to finish Noah's Sub. I've been stitching on it during just about all my stitching time this month and this is where I'm at now...

Noah's Sub 12/1/08

Over three quarters of the way done! Since last time I finished the water, stitched the dolphin, some of the sub itself, and a little bit more on the animals up top. Long way to go yet but I'm hoping it will go quick once I hit the sky and all those half stitches.
