First International Mailing :)

Silly to some, I'm sure, but very exciting to us...we mailed out our first envelope to the kiddo's country!! Our CSP, which notifies them of our intent for ALL THREE cuties, was delivered back to our house APOSTILLED at 5:00pm today from our state. Thankfully we were just finishing an early dinner, so I was able to hop right up from the table and fly out the door. I managed to get in the car and rush it down to our UPS store (we consider it ours because recently we are there almost everyday - notarizing, copying, mailing, etc.) The last pick up was at 6pm, so I made it just in time! Our CSP will be there on Friday - not a cheap thing!! In my excitement, however, I totally forgot to make copies. But thankfully, Meredith, our RR coordinator, was able to email me a copy of it! Sooo thankful :) Also, sooo thankful for my mom and George, who watched Pumpkin (and bathed her) and cleaned up dinner, while I was off running, not literally of course - but I would if I had to, down to UPS.

Oh, and on the medical front, I was able to find out today what in the world was going on with our lab results (we had our blood drawn last Tuesday for our physicals - normally takes 2 days tops to get back.) According to the doctor's office, they hadn't received anything. I spoke yesterday to them and they were going to contact the lab, but I didn't hear anymore, so I bugged them again today. Finally, they told me just to call the lab myself. So, I did and the lab told me they electronically sent the results for both of us on Nov. 24th. I asked if they could resend them. I called the doctor's office back, armed with this information, and was told their system was down (why didn't they tell me that before? umm, perhaps that's why they didn't get them the first time!!) But they did receive the second attempt, so our appointment to have the doctor complete and sign our medicals is Friday afternoon. Now I'm desperately trying to find a traveling notary, who can meet us at the doctor's to notarize everything. I didn't think it would be hard, but apparently a lot of traveling notaries in our area are no longer in business, probably due to the housing crunch here. I do have a call out, but no one has returned it yet. So, please pray that I will be able to find someone tomorrow and that they won't charge us an arm and a leg!


  1. God will provide your notary! You are getting closer to your babies every day! God Bless!

  2. That really is exciting isn't it. We did this for Tanner and Anna last week. Although, now that you mention it, I think I may have forgotten to make a copy as well.
