Lori and the terrible,horrible, no good, very bad day
I am ready to end one of the worst days I have had in a LONG time. It started out bad and got worse- I won't bore you with all the details but I will share with you some adoption news that is causing me to worry. I contacted our agency because I thought it had been a long time since I mailed immigration the request for Brandon's finger printing,change of country etc. I mailed it on Sept.9 and they have not even cashed my check. When she learned of this she suggested I contact them to make sure it is not lost..WHAT!!! If it's lost that is a BIG deal!!! I had Chuck buy delivery confirmation but he threw out the paper because he thought they had received it. If that alone isn't enough. Half our paperwork is being returned because of a problem with the notary. Which means it will all have to be done over again. I feel like I am taking one step forward and ten steps back.There is a possibility that our adoption case worker can provide a "footnote" on each document that "this is a genuine and true document" sign it and have it notarized there and then have the Washington(that the state they're in)Sect. of State certify it. Please pray that God will put his hand in this and lead us through all these problems and red tape. I am starting to get nervous about not making our pre-approval date. I don't think I could bear it if I somehow lost her after seeing her sweet face. I am trying to focus on tomorrow and this day from the time I got up , through work with all its problems, until 10 minutes ago when I was cleaning up dog XXXX for the third time, is almost over and tomorrow is a new day full of hope.
