Apostille .....a French word which means a certification. Also know as the LAST step in the Kazakhstan paper chase! Dart was on the road for nearly 7 hours today. He drove to two county seats and to the state capital to obtain the certifications and apostilles neeeded for our dossier documents. The very lovely Jennifer Brunner certified 24 documents this afternoon and officially completed the paper chase phase of our Kaz adoption.

In case you wondered......
In 1961 many nations joined together to create a simplified method of "legalizing" documents for universal recognition. Members of the conference, referred to as the Hague Convention, adopted a document referred to as an apostille that is recognized by all member nations.
Documents sent to member nations, completed with an apostille at the state level, may be submitted directly to the member nation without further action.
