Just a quick paperwork update for you. It justs gets worse everyday so it pains me to sit down and write it. But here's what I know. Our new birth certificate made it out of Archives. However, MOI will not accept it this way. It now has to go through legalization which is a three-step process: Parquet, Judgement, and Foreign Affairs. We got through Parquet today and will be out of Judgement (they say) next Tuesday. No word on Foreign Affairs.
I did find out something helpful today. Vera, another adoptive mother has a blog (www.adoptivemomhaiti.blogspot.com) with lots of specific and up-to-date information on the Haitian adoptive process. On her July 10th entry she gives a readable synopsis of the procees once your paperwork gets to Haiti. It was helpful for me for see it written out that way. Thanks, Vera.
In other news today, my mom is coming down next Thursday. We are looking forward to having her here. I'll try to do better with the pictures in the next few days.
