Adoption Immigration Paperwork
So, as a Canadian adopting internationally, before you leave the country to get baby you have to start the immigration process.
(Side note – I’ve realized if the adoption fails, it means at some point we may have to cancel the application. But, I refuse to think about that today. I just cannot go there right now and I’m focusing on the hope that we don’t have to ever cancel the immigration process).
So as the ever prepared adoptive parent, I sat down to start the paperwork. Expecting it to take at least a few hours and multiple headaches.
It is a 2 part process. Once you get through Part 1, you start Part 2 when you are told to (which appears to be once baby is home in Canada).
So, here’s my surprise of today. Adoption immigration paperwork seems to be the easiest form I’ve filled out to-date! Seriously.
I have to get certified copies of documents (driver’s licenses, marriage certificate, passports, etc.), but that’s not too hard. I’m sure we can make that happen sometime next week.
And here’s the biggest shocker, the cost isn’t outrageous. $100 for Part 1. $0 for Part 2! Yes, you read that right, something is free!!
