God is writing another story

God is writing another story. It starts with 3 Johnsons, a ministry to unwed mothers in Taiwan, 2 passionate God-loving ladies, an 18 year old girl and 1 tiny baby. Let's see where the story goes...

Next Steps

So what's next in our paperchase?  Here is what we **hope** to accomplish by mid-April:

1)  This week I'm mailing our change of country application to USCIS, and mailing our marriage license to the Illinois Secretary of State to get it state certified.

2)  When our Chinese translated home study, power of attorney and adoption contracts arrive from His Hands via FedEx (next week??), we will take all of our remaining documents to our local county clerk's office for county certification.  This has gone quickly for us in the past--last time it took only 20 minutes!

3)  Then we will FedEx everything to the Tennessee Secretary of State for state certification.

3)  Next we take everything to TECO (Taipei Economic and Cultural Office) in Atlanta for authentication.

Home Study
Power of Attorney
Adoption Contract
Police Background Checks
Medical Letters
Employment Letters
Marriage License
Financial Statement

4)  Last, we FedEx the completed dossier to Holly and Trena at His Hands where they apply for a court date

I love checking the steps off my list!!! :)
