Paperchase, round 1 in the bag

Just a quick update tonight. We both received our child abuse clearences today. Having worked with kids since college, Melissa's been through this a bunch of times before. Apparently, the clearence comes back way faster if you write "Adoption" on the. Took less than a week, when it normally takes 2-3 weeks.

I'm imressed at the fanciness of the certificate. It looks like something you might frame and hang on the wall - fancy type, and slightly off-white paper. Can't image actually doing so, but it kinda feels good getting our first official government approval related to the adoption completed. They call it the "Paper-Chase" for a reason, and we win round 1.

Anyway, those of you with kids out there will be glad to know we're in the clear!
