Three, Tres, Trois, Sost (Updated)

That's right, I currently hold in my hand 3 US Passports. Stamped, sealed, delivered. Contrary to what the County Clerk told me, which was that all of Ash's Ethiopian documents would be returned to me along with his new passport, they indeed were not. I will be following up with this. They will return those documents to me, right? Sure, they're no longer necessary now that we have his NY/US documents, but I want the ET documents, if even just for sentimental value. They belong to us, and should've been in the envelope along with his passport. Maybe they'll just be arriving separately today... I hate to complain in the midst of a joyous occasion, but I am really bummed that they took his ET Birth Certificate, Passport, and Adoption Papers. Really bummed.

UPDATE: His ET documents came in the mail today. Phew.

Why does Ash look so upset in his photo?

That's actually his "cheese face", if you look close up you can tell he's really trying to smile. We think it's a pretty cute passport mugshot!

Phew, is right. That's why I've been dragging my feet on applying for Moe's passport. Good to know they followed through.

Love the passport photo, Ash looks like a little man.
