The Last Package SENT!!!

Going to FEDEX and overnighting documents has been such a HUGE portion of the adoption process, we had to post our last visit there. I can't tell you how many times we have gone to FEDEX and sent things to Missouri Secretary-of-State's Office, Guatemalan Consulate in Chicago, our adoption agency and our attorney in Guatemala! I have kept all receipts, and have yet to get a grand total. I asked today how much it would cost to get the envelope there...$66.50! I can fly there round-trip for $523! Speaking of which, I have been on the phone and internet trying to get my pick-up trip booked. I'm planning to head down a little early. Then, Donnie will come down the next week or so for Embassy Day! Right now, I'm thinking of leaving on Sunday, April 20th! Oh, my goodness....A TWENTY-DAY COUNTDOWN 'TIL I HOLD MALAENA-SLOAN!
