Ryan's new passport came in the mail today!! His was expiring in April of 2009. In some countries they don't let you travel to their country if your passport expires in 6 months or less. I am not sure Russia is one of those countries, but I would rather be on the safe side than having my husband stuck in Russia or unable to travel with me to Russia! We expedited the passport and got it in 12 days door to door with the 4th of July holiday in there. That is without overnighting it either way. Not too bad, I would say.
So, now there are 6 documents that have his passport number on it that I need to redo. Yes, they give you a whole new passport number because it would be too easy to just keep the same one!! I know this won't happen, but I am hoping to get our new 171 next week. Then, I can take my 6 documents and the 171 to the state capital to be authenticated. If not, I will have to take 2 trips, and who knows how many more once we get a referral!!
Of course this all happens when my next 2 weeks are extremely busy! I should have known something with the adoption would happen. But, I will try to get to the state capital sometime next week because the week after it would be impossible to do.
Things seem to be moving with the people in line ahead of me, so I am getting excited!
