    Well I guess the positive is that you must be going somewhere exciting!

    yes maternidade - such a painful process.
    @wobbleyhorse - I am indeed very excited ... just annoyed and frustrated at the 3+ times having to go to renew DD's paspport. For the want of 5 days.

    Most countries require your passport to have 6 months validity ... but her passoport expires 5 months and 3 weeks after we get back ... so need to get a new one.

    They have vastly simplified the process for renewing a passport once you have one already - which is GREAT - except that you cant use that to renew a childs passport, only an adults.

    A childs passport, you need to start from scratch.

    I remember going with my aunty to get a passport photo for her 4-5month old. Being her first baby and me being a teenager we had no idea what we were doing, so we thought we'd have a crack in one of those passport photo booths. Well, despite not getting a usable photo we were just about wetting ourselves with laughter at the photos. We were squatting on the ground holding him up, but he'd look away, he had a small vomit or he'd cry. I think we tried a few times for memory and none of them were usable. We laughed even harder when we walked out if the post office and like 2 shops down was a photography place. All they did was pop him on a bean bag and snap it was done. We wasted a fair bit of money that day, but hey the photos are still around and we both still just about wet ourselves when we talk about it.

    Try the process for a child of 16 and a half years when her biological father has not had contact with her in over 16 years and we don't know where he is Frustrating, annoying and I feel upset for DD who is extremely angry as it is just highlighting the absentee biological 'father'.

    But ... having to go this frustration means we are going somewhere exciting, so it will be worth it in the end!

    Isn't there ways around that? Coz I'm pretty sure that will be the issue for me with my DD and her absent father :/

    I haven't had the unique pleasure of getting a passport for my son yet but I have to say that this comment had me in fits of laughter!
