We received our "GOLDEN TICKET" on Thursday. The golden ticket AKA, I-171H is our provisional approval to adopt Elliot. It was the last piece of paper that we needed to send to Elliot's country for our dossier.
The I-171H had to be notarized and apostilled. We notarized it on Thursday night and apostilled it on Friday. Apostilling it meant a trip to Austin. The kids and I had the best trip, they were fantastic. Nearly eight hours in the car is a long time for little ones. They were so excited to be part of the final piece of paperwork. They were given the choice to go play with friends, but they chose to go be part of bringing Elliot home!
We arrived in Austin in no time flat ... and found this parking space .... prime - huh!?!
