Notarize, Authenticate and get it out of here

While in Massachusetts, we went to a physician who is a good friend of my parents to have our Health Certificates completed again. A Notary who has an office in the same building was kind enough to come up and seal the doctor's signature. We brought lots of yummy Belgian chocolates as a thank-you.

Got copies of our passports notarized....Doesn't Hans look absolutely thrilled?

At the Massachusetts Secretary of State office waitng for the following to be Authenticated:

  • My employment certificate
  • Both Health certificates
  • Both passports
After all that I forgot to take a picture of the pretty gold seals before overnighting them all to the adoption agency. Anyway, they are very shiny.

Now we have Hans' employment certificate, our marriage license and police checks to deal with; then they will be sent to the agency, too.

Our homestudy was approved by our agency and we are awaiting final sign-off so we can mail it in with our fingerprints and my child abuse clearance to the Consulate office in Frankfurt.

Almost there...
