Hanna's been gone the last week to get Eileen her passport. Since their hukou's in Shuangyashan, the registering for their passports has to be done up there. Per Chinese law, Eileen's biological father has to grant permission. We expected trouble from him, like he would be unwilling or would demand lots of money, but all he asked in exchange was that we send him a picture of Eileen a couple times a year. Hanna keeps saying that everything's going easily.
Tomorrow Hanna and Eileen both should arrive home. To follow what the three of us have to go through to get to the US, I'm starting something new tomorrow, here.
