On Thursday, March 8th, we took a trip to Springfield, IL in order to validate all of the paperwork in our dossier. We arrived a little before lunch and took the paperwork to the Secretary of State’s index department. There, for about $50, they verified that all the paperwork that had already been notarized was really, really, really super authentic.
After the documents were authenticated, we had lunch on the lawn of the capital building. Then we went a few blocks westward to the Abraham Lincoln Museum. The kids really loved the museum. It was a great day for our family as we thought about the future arrival of our little one.
