Let us touch the dying, the poor, the lonely and the unwanted
according to the graces we have received and let us not be ashamed or
slow to do the humble work.

I am the proud mom to 6 kids: Natasha, 24, Nikolai, 20, Reese, 20, Maylee, 14, Erik, 10 and Violet, 7. The kids come from Russia, Ukraine and China; I'm so proud of my family sometimes I think I'll burst and I needed an outlet for it - so I've created this weblog. :o)

We had our first official document get sent off for an apostille yesterday. A very simple form, stating that we wanted to "reserve" Simon, and hoping that they will hold him for us and give us a quick appointment when our documents are finally in order.


The form itself was okay, but we forgot to put in this info, and I forgot to replace "Wife" and "Husband" with our names under the line on which we were to sign, etc. The notary messed up, drawing arrows all over the paper, indicating whose signature was whose, etc. Ugh! What a mess!! I don't ever remember having any troubles like this with any of my 3 Russian adoptions.

I sure hope this isn't a sign of things to come...

Oh no Missy. Take a deep breath. Are you going to redo it?

Missy said...

Oh, yes, we had to. Fortunately, we were at Meredith's and she re-did it for us. ;o} But since our 171-H is in so fast, Andrea said we might not even need to bother getting it over there first, since the dossier is following so soon. I can't believe how FAST this is happening all of a sudden!! I thought we had a good 2-3 weeks, at least, before the 171-H showed up!! WOW!
