Eliot's life of crime


Well, it's over. Eliot got fingerprinted today at the passport office. He will now have to cease his incessant life of crime he's been living behind the scenes. But seriously, could there be anything cuter than 1. Eliot's passport picture or 2. Eliot's little fingerprints? I mean, it's ridiculous!

Okay, so what now? Our file will be submitted at the U.S. Embassy tomorrow and we will wait until Monday to hear when our final Visa appointment is. The appointment will probably be about 2 weeks later. We're trying to get it moved up but don't know what will happen. Sometimes they are very flexible but other times not. Pray that our case finds favor with whoever answers the phone!

It's fun to think that I'll be driving Eliot to the St. Louis Zoo in a few weeks after a quick stop at Bread Co.! Unreal!

I am sure it will take a while for your new reality to sink in. BUT once it does and all of the Eliot Fan Club gets their much awaited time...maybe Eliot can make some new friends. I have two boys that would love to meet him. Oh and it would be cool for us adoptive parents to hang out too I guess. :)
