Today was a good mail day! FedEx brought our passports and visas. They didn't put Ryan's middle initial on the visa like it is on his passport, but they assure me that it should be fine. I would hate something like that to cause us problems.
Then, I got the pennant for my adoption necklace with Vera's name on it. The necklace I have from Junk Posse is a heart that has 'I choose you' stamped all over it. It comes with a round tag that hangs in front of it and you can put your child's name on it. When Ryan bought me the necklace we, of course, didn't know our child's name yet. So, when we got home he already emailed the lady and had 'Vera Marie' put on it and it is already here. I had to go out and make copies of our passports and visas, so I stopped in at a local jewelry store. 2 minutes and 2 dollars later, it was done! I love it! I tried to take a picture of it, but it didn't work out.
Now, in tomorrow's mail I am hoping to get Vera's plane ticket to come home. They had to issue her a paper ticket and it has yet to arrive yet. If it doesn't come, they say we can sign something that says we didn't receive it and they will issue us another one. I just hope it comes tomorrow. Also, tomorrow I should get a package from a friend who just got home from Russia. She is sending me her daughter's snowsuit to borrow for Vera and the traveling medicine kit. I can't wait for the mail to come...
