Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

Do you know what this is? IT'S RAIA'S BIRTH CERTIFICATE! We finally have it. Will went and talked to the director of ZAGS this morning. She read the laws and discovered that in place of a notarized letter, we could just have an eyewitness testimony. How easy! Will was certainly an eyewitness. I had him get boxes of chocolate for her and the other nice lady there.

Mom, how's that for a birthday present for you? I know you've been really concerned about this, and it was solved on your birthday. Hurrah! And happy birthday!

Now, I think we're going to celebrate with pizza for supper and brownies for dessert. . . .

I'm off to tell Mom, who asks me every other day if everything's been 'fixed' yet!

Raia looks so content in that picture - she must be glad to know that the government thinks she exists! Thank goodness Will qualified as a witness. Hooray!!

Praise the Lord and His timing. No idea why it was necessary for it to happen this way but I'm sure He had a good reason because He is always so faithful to give us just what we need exactly when we need it. Love and Prayers, Marie Green

Yay! Hurrah! and God bless bureaucrats everywhere! Seriously, we are praising the Lord with you, and are so happy, we'll just have to come see for ourselves whether or not Raia is an official Hunsucker or not. You may remember her great, great Aunt Mary Hunsucker Collins believed only boys could be true Hunsuckers, and declared Raia's father to be one. I happen to believe all females born to men named Hunsucker are true, as well. Oh well, Aunt Mary was a strange duck. Baba Julie and I can't wait to see you next month, Lord willing! and we rejoice with you right now!

Much love to each of you,
