Let the paperchase begin

One thing about adoptions, either domestic or international, there is a lot of paperwork. We have started working on our 1st packet of papers to send into the government for our adoption. We had to get certified copies of our marriage license which was easy since we are still in the Waco area. Getting our birth certificate copies is going to be more of a challenge. Steve was born in New Hampshire and I was born in Germany. We obviously can't go pick them up so I am having to figure out how to get them via internet and mail. We are also working on our autobiography for our homestudy. It has more than 100 questions about pretty much everything about our lives. That part is almost done. We are planning on spending many of our days of summer getting the paper work together.
I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July. Ours was good and luckily it didn't rain unlike today. It was nice to spend time with family. My mom and dad grilled out and made it special for us all. Here is a pic with my parents from the holiday.

Hey Cindy,
I am so excited for the two of you. This is such an amazing time in your life. Know that I will be thinking and praying for you.

My hard drive crashed and I lost all of my email addresses (and everything else). Can you drop me a quick note so I can write back from your last email?
