Dossier To Ethiopia (DTE)......the day that we have been waiting for!!! Our Dossier is FINALLY on it's way to ET. Our DTE date is June 15th, 2012. This is the day that we officially begin our wait. Jay and I decided that we will celebrate our DTE anniversary every month by having dinner at our favorite Ethiopian restaurant. We took our parents tonight. My parents have been enjoying ET food for years but this was Jay's parents first time. We had a great time celebrating our DTE date together.
We finally finished our ET Dossier! It is on it's way to our agency in Virginia as I type this!!!!! Once it is reviewed by our Family Coordinator it will be sent to ET. The day that it is Fed Ex'd to ET will be our DTE date. This is what our agency goes by to determine who is next for a referral. The average wait time for our request is 18-24 months.....and the wait begins.
