Cause for Celebration!

This afternoon I Fed-Exed our completed and authenticated dossier along with three extra copies of the entire bundle - two certified and one plain to our agency in Ferndale, WA. In all I had about 65 documents notarized, made over 200 copies, drove south to Olympia, north to Ferndale, and east over the Cascade mountains twice -- in winter weather, no less! -- and sent it all to D.C. for authentication. It took 4 full months and in the end weighed 3 pounds. Whew! It's been consuming. I'm cautiously optimistic that our paperwork is complete and correct at this point, but I wouldn't be surprised if something comes up and we need to make a correction somewhere down the road. Anyway, cheers!
