Happy Dance











This morning started out super great!! It was just another Tuesday post-vacation day; trying to get some sort of school done, when I got a call from our family coordinator returning my call from yesterday about drama mail to which I came home (no notary seal and MD rejected fingerprints). Patiently, she helped me to establish that YES, there IS a notary seal on the document-- not ALL notaries are circular... some are RECTANGULAR!!! Wow, don't I feel like a ding. At least I seem to add some comic relief to her days when we do talk.

But the best piece of news she gave me was to stop pursuing a police report from the State of Maryland-- Praise the Lord!!! I think I made her tired just explaining why they rejected the prints, asking why we had to have FBI AND State clearance, etc... she said; "You have NC clearance, right? Between that, your homestudy report AND USCIS clearance, I think we are covered." I was so giddy, I started giggling on the phone, which made her start giggling and then I just kept saying how she made my day, week and month!! Now, if I can only get my money back from MD... that ought to be a trick.

So, now we are down to our final two pieces of paper-- the homestudy report and the I-171H form. All other documents are gathered and waiting to be copied and sent off...which is good, because it looks like we have a long wait ahead of us.


That's it For now. Enjoy the pics of our week in NV!
Grace and Peace,
Shari
