It turns out Alex was out of town trying to make money. We got a hold of him on Saturday. We now know his birthday! We went to the passport office this morning with our hopes up and heads held high. But today was not the day. Apparently we need the original motorized form from Ethiopia that Alex had signed. Thank God I know someone in Ethiopia right now on a mission trip. She will bring the original form back with her. Thank you Erica. If you get a chance stop by her blog and give her some love.
