 Gary and I will be needing to update our medical form since the previous one will be close to expiring.   But one of the wonderful things is that the doctor's office has a notary on hand so one less worry.  I just hate exams and blood work but it will be worth it for these two little tappers.

Currently we have 40 documents waiting to be notarized @ $20 per document ($800.00) :'o( 
Once each document  is double checked and reviewed we will be ready for apostilles for a grand total of 58 documents @ $20 per document (1,600).  :'0(((((  With it being so many documents and the fear of them getting lost in the mail we decided we would travel to our State's Commission's Office  for apostilles.  SO 264 miles there and another 264 back.  Roughly a 5 to 6 hour trip and with rain most of the week.  When we traveled to Arkansas this pass  Friday we got  caught in a really bad storm and had to pull off the road till the storm cleared.  It seems every trip we have made during this adoption it has rain.  

We'll be getting up early and arrive shortly after lunch.  Next check in a hotel overnight and head back the following day.  Once home we have completed paper chase. 
Our Paper Baby is ready to be send.

We have date and a new little girl
