I mentioned a while back that I finally finished all my DONA certification paperwork–it took two out-of-town trips without the kids or my husband to get it done (yay for planes and trains!), but I finally got everything completed and mailed it away a few weeks ago! I had been waiting for word from DONA that my packet–and what a packet it is!–was received, and just the other day, I finally got word that they have it safe and sound at their headquarters! Whew!

So now the real waiting begins: I have been hearing it can take up to six months for everything to be reviewed and finalized and for me to get my certification! Funny that I won’t even be attending births then since I’ll be with my newest little one, but it’s still going to be a wonderful thing to finally have accomplished!
