So, in case you are following along at home, (although you technically could be following from work I guess....I digress) legals are another pile of paperwork (surprise, surprise) that include:
- Certificate of Acknowledgment from the American Embassy attesting the paperwork was presented
- Extract of Family Register showing your child's name, birth date, etc.
- Certificate of Appointment to Guardian of Minor Orphan in Orphanage attesting that the Korea orphanage has been granted guardianship
- Statement of Consent to Overseas Adoption which shows the agreement of the child's guardian to have the child adopted overseas.
- Copy of baby's Korean Birth Certificate (from Adopting from Korea)
From here, we await approval of the I-600. Sounds like about 5-6 weeks for that to get approved, and then Little Man's file heads off to the National Visa Center for it's final U.S. stop.
We are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. And he's really really cute!
