Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their misfortune and to keep oneself unstained by the world. James 1:27

Hey guys! Ok!! A lot has happened this week for sure!! So here goes!!! On Sunday night we drove to Memphis so we would be there when the courthouses opened at 8am. We got there at 8 am, got what we needed and head to Pulaski TN at 810 am, we arrived there around 1230 and got what we needed, grabbed a bite to eat and drove to Nashville TN by 230!! Our Psyciatrist in in Pulaski TN. He works in Memphis at a hospital several days a week so he had stuff notarized in both Memphis and Pulaski. The state of Tennessee requires you to go to get a certified letter stating that the notary is true and valid and the signature is real. On Tuesday we took all of our documents to Birmingham. We found out that Ben's medicals didn't have a copy of his chest x-ray and the kids medicals needed to be rewrote with the kids full names, and Anna and Nate's birth certificate was more than a year old. On Wednesday, I went to pick up a copy of Ben's chest xray results, got Anna and Noah new birth certificates at the health dept. and picked up the kids medicals. Tonight, we will drive to Montgomery to spend the night so we will be in Montgomery when they open. We will be at the Secretary of State office to have Anna and Noah's birth certificates apostilled and then we will take everything to Birmingham to give to our agency. Our agency has received our FBI clearances back from the Secretary of State. At that point, God's will, everything should be ready to be mailed to Peru!! WHEW!! I need a nap!!:) When our dossier arrives in Peru, which should be on Monday, our lawyer there and some other folks will start pushing our dossier to be translated! My medicals expire on April 10th! If they expire before then, they will have to repeated which will mean at least two more weeks and more money. We are praying that it will be translated and turned in to the director by then!!:) God Bless, Brandi
