Here's what a dossier looks like

This represents months of hard work collecting various paperwork - medical report stating I am healthy, police report stating I'm not a criminal, home study from my social worker, photos, birth certificate, reference letters, passport, employment letter, financial statement, etc. Every piece of paper had to be notarized, then certified by the county in which it was notarized, THEN authenticated by the Secretary of State. Quite a tedious process, but no doubt worth every second!
