More Paperwork!

I've just found out that if we do as we are planning to do, and only I travel on the first trip to Ethiopia. Then Mr Messy needs to give me Power of Attorney to act on his behalf while I'm over there. After a couple of frantic emails to our Notary, who was supremely helpful, efficient and knowledgable when we were processing our dossier, we now know how to proceed. He has sent me a template of the letter we need to sign and have witnessed. Then it needs to be Notarised, then legalised at the Foreign and Commonwealth Offices and then authorised by the Ethiopian Embassy. This is probably going to take about a week to do, and cost about £250, but after everything else we've paid to process our papers so far, I've just stopped counting! There can't be much more paperwork can there?!?! Well not until we are re-adopting our child under UK law I suppose!
