Can I attached two IRS Forms 8453 as 1 attachment to an e-filed return? I have two different dependents being released by the custodial parent.

Do you mean form 8332?  Form 8453 is if you are mailing the return in.  I attach them as two separate attachments.

I was not aware that we could attach the 8332's as pdfs.  That would definitely save time and postage.  Is it comparable to attaching the 1099 info forms for schedule D?  With those there is a box to check that you are attaching forms?

Yes, when you add them as attachments 8332 is one of the selections. There is no separate  box on the 1040 though that would need checked.

So you just ignore the 8453 that generates with the return when selecting form 8332?

I attach the 8332 as a PDF because it has the signature on it.  The way I am talking about an 8453 wouldn't be generated.

Hmmm, maybe it is because I usually generate the 8332 from the non-custodial parents return, they get the signature and return to me.  And I always have a generated 8453.

@Maxine   - when can I expect my Girl Scout cookies to arrive?

I tell you IRonMaN, you must have the nose of a bloodhound.  My little girl scout dropped off a case on Thursday.  Haven't opened it yet as I'm trying to fight off a bug that another client so willing shared with me last week. Popping vitamin C every couple of hours hoping for the best.  Will wait to open cookies until I can really enjoy the expensive little devils.
