Taking Care of Business

Our fourth (not third, I was wrong earlier) post placement report has now been notarized, certified, and authenticated. You fellow adoptive parents will appreciate the mild panic attack I experienced when I walked in the room to see AP taking the gold seal off the authentication page and saying "I like it pretty sticker!". I think I got it back on straight, though :) Our photo pages are added and it is ready to be sent out tomorrow.

And guess what came in the mail today? AP's passport!
It took forever to get it. I was really starting to worry because she and I sent our applications in on the same day (mine had to be renewed) and I've had mine back for over a month now. So if anyone out there was wondering if your child can get a passport without paying for that expensive certificate that says they are a citizen first, then the answer is YES. Having her passport now means we can start the countdown to........ MEXICO! We are cruising there shortly after New Years!

I would have died if I walked in and Bryson was taking the seals off!!! Yeah, your PPP is done. A cruise, that sounds so wonderful!

Whoo hoo!! We just got our kid's passports in the mail too (but they came pretty quickly). We're hoping for a Disney cruise in the spring. And yes, no certificate required.
