Cool, Calm, and Collected....Sort of !

It's my fault. I forgot to send in my fingerprint money ($160) when I sent in my I-800 A form. I was sooo careful when I filled the form out. I nervously filled in each line, checking the directions several times so I wouldn't get that dreaded phone call that something was wrong with my form and they couldn't process it. ( sorry for the run on sentence with all the prepositions and conjunctions !). I received an email from my officer that they could not process my form...ugghhh ! They are sending me something in the snail mail that I have to have to send in with my money. Wouldn't it be nice if I could just write a check and mail it to them ? So, I am waiting on a form so that then, I can send in a check. It wouldn't be so bad if this was the first time I have done this, but no, I have done this before ! Well, my goal of having my I-800 A form done in 30 days is shot - oh well !! All this paperwork is fun - I keep telling myself :)

We had to do our fingerprints at the very beginning of our homestudy and I was so nervous about doing everything just right. I keep going over things in my adoption notebook to double check everthing. But, God does not have a Plan B. Everything is Plan A to Him and He does not get sidetracked. I know it is hard to wait though. Ours has been going on for 9 months now and I keep saying, "I should have a baby by now."

Sorry for the delay, I know it's frustrating, but every little detail aligns you with the precious one chosen just for you.

My guess is we'll be seeing a delay as well...compliments of the swine flu concern:-(.
