Expired Document Found?

We were told by Russia several days ago that one of our registration docs is expired. However, they could not tell us which one. Our reps at CHI looked through our paperwork and couldn't find anything. I may have found the document Russia was talking about. Our marriage license doc expired two weeks ago. About 3 days before they called us. CHI cannot verify that. They have emailed Russia a couple times and are not getting a response. So, I'm just going to re-do the form. I'm heading to the Sec of State in KC tomorrow. Hopefully that will be the right one and we can get registered in Astrakhan.

Will's 8th Birthday!

Our sweet Will boy is 8 years old! He wanted a "Bug Party". In the winter it's a little tough to find bugs, so we had to get creative. We did kind of a Fear Factor type of party. They had to dig their hands in cold speghetti noodles and try to pick out the gummy worms - while blindfolded. Boys love that kind of stuff! Will is the funnest, cutest, nicest 8-year-old in the world! We love him so much!

Registered, not Registered, Registered, not Registered...

Well, we were told again today that we are NOT registered yet with Astrakhan. One of our docs is (or is about to) expire. However, CHI does not know what docs the Dept of Ed in Moscow is referring to. They have been waiting for a reply - since Thursday. Two other families were registerd yesterday - sort of passed us up. They want babies, so hopefully that won't effect us too much. I'm tired. I'll post again when we have more info...
