I wrote about the difficulties of getting Alli's birth certificate here.
Well, I called back the vital records department and talked to a very nice lady who had no idea what I was talking about.... She passed me on to somebody who did, after I begged.
It turns out, our Birth Certificates were held up by divine order.... :) They were going to print them today. (late)
So I asked, can I PLEASE have 5 more, and send you the money?? The lady was soooo nice. She said, "I'll hold off printing them till tomorrow. Fed EX me the amount you want, with the original order info and I'll print them all at one time and if you include an envelope, I'll fed ex them back to you."
WOW! I was so happy I could have kissed her. :)
So, we SHOULD have ALL of our Birth Certificates by Thursday!
THEN.... I have to mail the 5 to the state department for apostille.
I think I am battling birth certificate/apostille anxiety.... My blood pressure is up! UGH
