Update & WOYWW 269...

Hi everyone I have missed a few WOYWW.

Birthday card & update....

Hi everyone!
I've had a rough few days so my mojo has taken a break. 
On Tuesday Adam went to sign the custody papers but luckily he has to have an interpreter in Germany by law and the papers he was expected to sign said the children could not go anywhere without her signature. Even if they went to hospital they needed her signature which would not be possible if she was in South Africa. 
So back to square one. 
Now she is saying he can have full custody but if anything happens to Adam she can come and take them. 
I just wish it was all sorted poor Adam was in such a state. 
I just feel useless as we are so far away from them. It's knocked me for 6 again. I have had three days of migraines. 
I was at hospital about my hands and they are doing some tests next month to try and find out what I am allergic to. I hope it's not crafting lol!
I made this last week and forgot to blog it.
Card base is from Anna Marie designs. Blue card was embossed with Tattered Lace 8x8 EF.
Papers are from LE Baby boy pad. Sentiment was cut on the Silhouette.
Thanks for calling.
