Passport, Social Security Card, and Consular Birth Abroad report applications for Kyalo.
Green Card application for Dexter.
Dental School applications for Dexter.
Maybe I should state that our life is all about applications. That's a bit more accurate. And there's so much work that goes into all of it. We need certified or notarized copies of a lot of our documents. It took 10 weeks to get Kyalo's birth certificate (we got several copies because we were told this would be the only chance, make it worth-while). Getting a passport (and US Citizenship) for Kyalo is a challenge. The US Embassy is not helpful. We have to submit documents to them for pre-screening on "Mondays and Wednesday between 9 & 11. Except for any Kenyan or American holiday, or the last Wednesday of the month." Gee, thanks. Fortunately, I can email them. But that means printing at one friends' house, and scanning at another! geesh.
Needless to say, I'll be glad when I don't have to look at another form!
We would appreciate your prayers as we wade through everything. All the schools need different things and have different deadlines (the first is due July 1). I'll talk more about the school stuff in a future post.
Today is the first Saturday in a long time that we've both been home with nothing to do. Dexter has spent a lot of time running around to get some of these things taken care of. He'll be glad when the errand running is completely behind us.
In the mean time, I will leave you with the latest round of photos of our little man. He's getting so big!
a little smile!
