Namaste ...

This morning, Evelyn and I enjoyed our first yoga class together at the Nosara Yoga Institute. Imagine, if you will, taking a class with your new daughter in the middle of the rainforest, listening to the sounds of the jungle. It was incredible.  She's actually quite good and I am really proud of  her. 

Later in the day, we learned that our "sentencia firme" was issued and our attorney sent a copy off to the Registrio Civil to get new birth certificates for Evelyn and Jose. And yes, we do need to go back to San Jose for their medical exams, but I'm not crying. While the kids are not happy about the 5 hour drive, it turns out that the medical records of their vaccination history is at the Hogaricito Cristiano. It's en route back to SJ. We want those vaccination records because 1) Jose and Evelyn would be very unhappy about having to get vaccinated again; and 2) it would cost another $400 per kid to get them done. So, note to adoptive families -- add asking for vaccination records to your own checklist of things that you need to complete during the adoption process in CR.

So, we drive to SJ tomorrow and see the doctor on Thursday morning. Then it's back to Nosara until the new birth certificates are issued. On a lovely and closing note, we stopped by the primas' casa this evening and here is a photo of the girls playing dress-up. Buenas noches!


  1. What a serene place for your yoga with Evelyn. It must have been amazing. Love the pictures!!!

  2. Simply amazing! What a totally awesome experience! Good luck in SJ!
