Well, we were not able to get Liam's birth certificate yesterday.
It turns out that we need our marriage certificate to be "apostilled." Basically that means we need an original copy with an internationally recognized notary. In order to get this Beth's mother will have to go to the same courthouse that we received the certificate in Georiga, and not only get another certificate but have it apostilled and rushed to Moscow.
We hope to have all of this finished and his birth certificate in hand by July 9. If it's a month after his birth there will be slight fine, but it's good to know that there is no major rush.
