Received an unexpected call today: we've been accepted into America World Adoption Agency's Ethiopia program! I didn't think that we would get a confirmation so soon, but thankful that our agency is on the ball and very responsive.
Our contact at the agency said she would be sending an email with all the next documents we need to fill out and return as well as info on getting setup with a social worker for our homestudy. Sure enough, the email arrived and was very clear on what needs to be accomplished next.
Sidenote: emails with bullet points and phrases such as "next steps" are always a good thing.
