Yesterday, we went to the government offices here in town and registered Eliseo. He is now the proud owner of his very own Mexican birth certificate.
Today, the children are finishing up their studies while Daniel is working. We plan on leaving after lunch to head 6 hours south to Los Cabos. There is an American Consulate there where we can apply for Eliseo's American passport and Born Abroad Certificate.
Pray for safety as we travel and that the paperwork will get done quickly without any problems. We have to get a picture taken for his passport before we leave today; the tricky part is that his eyes have to be open for it. Since newborns sleep like 20+ hours a day and even eat with their eyes closed often, this might not be easy. But we know the Lord even cares about little things like passport photos for our children . :)
