A little bit closer....


Marc and I set our alarm for 4:00 a.m. and headed out for the 3 hour drive to the Secretary of States office to get our documents authenticated. (Thanks baby for taking the day off of work to accompany & appease your over anxious wife) It was a looooonnnngg day, and let's just say the workers at the Sec. of St. office were in no particular hurry to authenticate our documents.  It is their policy- if you get their before 10:00a.m. that they will get them back to you the same day, but we had to wait alllll day.  We did save about 4 days of our paperwork either on someone's desk or on a Fed-ex truck so it was worth it.  Mina was exhausted by the end of the day.   At this very moment our dossier paperwork is winging its way to D.C. for it's final stamp of approval before heading to China!!!  Head over to our family blog, here for a funny (at least I think so) story about our little road trip to the State Capitol!

She is so cute dozing off on daddy's shoulders...I'm so excited for you guys!! But, Amy, how LIKE you to eliminate 4 days from this long journey by making the trip yourself instead of the FedEx man!!! BRAVO!
