Step Three – Passports Coming

Today, we spent a couple hundred bucks and applied for our passports.  It was really, a quite painless process.  We live in a sparcely populated county, so we just walked in and applied.  We filled our applications out on-line (mostly), and that saved a bit of time as we had most of the answers down on paper.  We got our passport photos a couple of months ago, and my certified birth certificate came a few days ago.  So, now for the wait.  We were told that it may take up to twelve weeks but it has been more like six weeks lately.  Whatever the case, we “should” have them in hand well before our October trip to Moldova.
