An instagram button is to the right.
Laura, owner of Rescued and Redeemed is holding an online auction through our instagram!
Ianna and Leora are working with her (I'm still figuring this instagram thing out:)
Some really awesome, creative, business mom's have donated incredible gifts to our action to help bring Mohale home!!
For those who will be adopting for Lesotho after us. I would suggest NOT purchasing airplane tickets until AFTER the USCIS in Johannesburg has given you a visa interview date.
(Although It's apparently common to not wait- if you are "type A" like I am, it feels stressful.)
We were instructed to make travel arrangements before the USCIS in Johannesburg gave us a date to arrive at the US Consulate for Mohale's Visa interview.
The visa interview is where we are given final approval to receive a visa for Mohale. Without a visa, he cannot enter the USA.
SO, it's felt
MORE STUFF TO DO:
Yesterday we "accidentally" learned that
biological, already adopted, and recently adopted need BIRTH CERTIFICATES issued within the last 4 months to TRAVEL in or out of South Africa.
Fast Birth Certificates:
Vitalchek (Link) is a great way to get Birth Certs fast!
We've used them before and they are fast and affordable!
I will go before you, and make the crooked places straight
So grateful that we were given a visa interview date for the week we had arranged to be in Johannesburg! Extremely thankful that we "accidentally" learned that ALL of our children will need birth certificates BEFORE traveling across the planet. So grateful we didn't end up stuck anywhere or in a situation where we did not have the required papers on our children to enter or leave South Africa.
Although it is a hassle, it is GOOD that more restrictions are being put in place to prevent child trafficking.
