Let's see, we got the birth certificate and went straight out to have Raia's passport photos taken. She sat on the photographer's stool (with some help from me), and looked right at the camera. Her face has something of a shocked look in the photos, but they turned out well. That night Will took those pictures and the birth certificate to Moscow to apply for her passport.
Will also got to meet up with Nathan and spend some time with Tima, a friend who has just been begging for that. Hopefully, he'll be home tonight.
All is going well here in Kovrov, even without Papa. Yesterday we enjoyed more beautiful fall weather, going for a walk and shuffling through the leaves. Today is a rainy indoor day.
We're still rejoicing over Raia's birth certificate! It's such a relief to have that taken care of.
