We just received word that our dossier will likely be forwarded to Petropavlovsk - at the very north of Kazakhstan, at the border with Russia. The agency said that it would confirm. As it turns out, a chatgroup friend adopted her daughter from there, so they will be a fountain of information I'm sure. We're of course really happy to have received the good news.. but this time around, perhaps a little bit cautious. We have been given a second chance - and hope to be successful this time around. Funny... kind of have a good feeling...hopefully it'a sign!
We also received news that some of the additional paperwork that we were missing on our original dossier was to be released from the Consulate today and sent directly to Kaz. Hopefully this will do the trick as well. The country had changed some of its criteria since we had applied and our dossier did not contain the new required wording... this has been addressed... so that's a relief. We'll post when we get additional information. Right now, we're busying ourselves with getting information on the city.
