I know my blog has been absolutely riveting lately with my constant updates about our 1-600A approval. So here is another one for you!
I talked to Barker today, and they heard back from the offices that are holding my approval up for ransom. (j/k, kinda) They told Barker they would "look into" our approval and they are currently processing people fingerprinted in March. Ummmm... we were fingerprinted in February. What in the world??? Barker told me to write the woman in charge again and put some pressure on her. BUT, be very nice, but be pushy. Hmmmm.... I have some things in mind I would like to write, but instead wrote a very nice, slightly pushy email just now. Barker says if I do not have it by next Wed. they are going to get more involved. Yipee. (excuse my sarcasm) This is just completely and utterly absurd. My fingerprits have been sitting on someones office desk for going on 10 weeks. I am so upset. Upset does not really do what I feel justice. Every day when I check the mail instant tears flood my eyes. Our paperwork just sits stagnat at Barker while someone is letting our paperwork sit still for no good reason. If 4 other people were printed after me and got their approvals within 2 weeks from other states there is absolutely no reason why almost 10 weeks later I am still checking the mail. Absolutely ridiculous. I was given a timeline from Barker of 6-8 weeks, with 8 weeks being the longest possible wait. I know it is no fault of Barkers and to some of you, me being upset about a few extra weeks may seem silly, but to me, all my hopes and dreams are tied to that approval. With that approval, our homestudy and request for our daughter can go to Korea. Without that approval, nothing happens. Everything I have prayed for for so long just sits. We can't get our daughter. So every day when I open that mail box and find a pile full of junk just reminds me of that. I fear it will never come and my prayers will never be realized. Now, I know, I am an emotional wreck at this point, and I know, every single thing in this adoption is in God's hands, in His timing. But I also know I am so in love with our little girl. I just want to be "on the list" and be waiting for her picture.
And that is what I wish I could write the woman in charge who holds the power to letting our paperwork go to Korea.
