So today, tomorrow, Thursday and Friday, Matthew and I will spend our days running around trying to get our adoption paperwork finished and sent off to Taiwan. We wouldn’t have had anything to do tomorrow BUT the notary for our home study is different that the notary of all of our other paperwork (the home study agent had his own notary for the home study and we used a free one from Matthew’s office to do the rest of the paperwork!)
That wouldn’t be too big of an issue but in the State of Alabama before you take your paperwork to the Secretary of State to have the notary’s notary confirmed, you have to have it done in the county first.
Still not too big of an issue except for…our two notary’s are in two counties. We called Baldwin county this afternoon after hearing that Mobile county wouldn’t confirm a notary from another county and the Probate Judge wasn’t in all day today so we would have to drop it off today and pick it up (hopefully) tomorrow.
Still not too big of a deal…except for the only place we can get all this done is 40 miles from our house. Ugh. Oh well!
Part of sending in our paperwork is sending in a family pictorial that they can take to court and show the judge. Pictures of the family, house, pets, nursery…you get the idea. So, I took some photos of the nursery today and here you go!
