Through the Land of Candy Canes

Have you seen the movie The Elf? Well, Buddy the Elf shares of his adventures to get to New York by stating, "I traveled through the Land of Candy Canes, then the Swirly Twirly Gum Drops, and then the Lincoln Tunnel." Well, that is what we felt like in order to obtain the new birth certificate, identification number, and apply for Evan's passport. We are grateful that the process went very well and able to accomplish everything. Now, we need to wait for the passport to be completed (4-7 business days) then travel to Kiev, pick up the passport, go to the US Embassy, then hopefully catch a flight home. Evan is doing very well considering he is with new people, new food, new places, new sounds, new schedule, new... We are learning as well and laughing along the way.
