Are we moving forward?

I got an apologetic email a couple days ago from Toni saying that a new format is now required for the Power of Attorney. Bah humbug!! I knew it was too good to be true that we got the last one done so effortlessly and quickly :) :) So though our original POA is in flight to AbbyLand as we speak, it is basically null and void.

So today I eventually got the precious page printed off after filling in Abby's new name {wouldn't YOU like to know what it is!!!} and the notarial wording required by Idaho. Kevin contacted a notary we know in a town about 15 miles away and she graciously agreed to help us out though, remember, it is a Saturday. I think she said something about being available until 4:00. I couldn't run right over as I had other business to attend to in the opposite direction. Finally about 3:30 I'm heading for the suburban with Caleb giving me directions like "Coat. Zip. Car. Now." Unfortunately he didn't mention anything like "Notebook. Document. Car. Now." We got all the way to our destination with like 5 minutes to spare and guess what!! I'd left the paper at home on the dining room table. So we zipped home, grabbed the adoption notebook, zipped back. It's was now 4:20. The official signing took about 5 minutes

I'm checking to see whether the document will work though because we got one of the names printed in the wrong spot. It was corrected and I don't think I will have any trouble getting it apostilled but I'm not sure if AbbyLand will accept it like that.
