Russian Adoption Consultant

I've taken a job here as a Russian adoption consultant. The hours are long, and the pay is in barter, but you gotta do what you gotta do, seein' as how I can't leave the country. :)

But seriously, the Children's Hope office in Brentwood, TN has an opening for such a job. The hours are still long, but I'm pretty sure they pay in US dollars. :) If you or anyone you know is interested, email Brenda at Children's Hope (I stripped out the @ sign in order to confuse "spambots". Geeky stuff. Never mind.) You'll figure it out. :)

As to my own paperwork problem, I'm told that they just have to request that the form be reissued. I don't know why, since I'm the one who filled it out in the first place. Why can't I just fill out another one? But you know how government bureaucracies are. This will give me something exciting to do while we wait those ten days after (assuming) the judge grants us custody of Elizabeth. It's not a "problem," it's an "opportunity!" That's the corporate way of looking at it, right? You know me, always the corporate sort of guy! :)
