I got word that Kristina is back at camp and in the swing of things. It was a great relief to know that she was around people I can communicate with. I had an awful dream about her recently; I think it was stress related though. Ukraine's government just confirmed that PAP's can expect to spend a minimum of 20 additional days in country for passport processing. Sigh. What a hardship that places on families that will be leaving their families, jobs, and responsibilities for such an extended period of time. I am guessing we will have to break the adoption into two trips. That means an extra set of airline tickets and more expense. Elections are scheduled for the end of September in Ukraine and that may shake things up in the system (for good or bad).
So we finally got the apostilles back. I ripped open the envelope planning to immediately repackage them in an international shipping folder and carry them up to FedEx. But instead I found that all of our documents had been unbundled, and only partially apostilled. Surprisingly, Florida doesn't allow for document bundling and each and every paper must have its own apostille. At $10 per apostille, I winced writing out the second check. I carried it back to the post office and resent it to the capital. Hopefully the papers will be back before the end of the week and THEN sent off to Ukraine. LOL! Somehow I keep saying that. With this timeframe and at this rate, it will be too cold to eat our ice cream outside of the SDA, Tami.
