As posted by Anne-Marie elsewhere on the web:
I got off work early today to go to Eli's work so we could get our adoption agency contract signed and notarized. It was the first stack of a huge pile of papers we'll be tackling throughout this process. Several of the ladies Eli works with are notaries, so one of them offered to help us out with it. She was really excited to be a part of the whole thing. On the way home, I stopped by the post office and mailed it off. The agency should receive it in a couple days, and then they'll call us to set up an appointment for our homestudy.
