Our formal application has been received by Bethany, and today we were assigned a social worker. She will guide us through the entire process, homestudy and dossier prep. I have to confess I had to look up "dossier" in the dictionary. My guess was that it is a bunch of papers on a similar subject. But considering that a dossier appears to be the key to us bringing home a beautiful child from Ethiopia and loving him forever, I figured it must have some loftier definition. Turns out it means a bunch of papers on a similar subject: us (the Inman family).
We still have a few straggling pieces of paper to turn in before we start meeting with our SW. Feel free to join me in hounding Spence to get his part done.
