another bump

another bump in our adoption road - we had thought that we would be a number on the waiting list today, but alas - it was not to be. My employment verification did not include my annual salary (probably because I am per diem and do not have a salary!), so I have to do it again. After two hours of wailing and crying, I think that my tear ducts are empty. My poor children - obviously I do not cry around them enough, because they were all way too concerned that "mommy is crying" and "please stop mommy" and "don't start again mommy!".:) anyways, God is so good - I wrote and called my boss right away (whom I have only met once over a year ago - I only work twice a month and only on the weekends), and found out that she is at a funeral in upstate new york. After putting the monkeys to bed, I decided to check my email one more time (still weaning myself off after having to be on top of the home study people 24/7):). And lo and behold - my boss had emailed me back, telling me that she would be in the office at 8am monday morning and would be happy to help in any way she could. Wow- although my weekend would have been so much better with a number:), this makes the waiting okay, as I know that monday morning it will be done and I do not have to wonder when she will be back! Thank you Father - I needed that tonight!

I'm sorry. I know that has to be deflating but I hope everything gets worked out quickly next week so you can get those precious numbers and start on the countdown!

Im so sorry to hear about the delay. Our Dossier didnt pass the first friday either and I wanted to crawl into a hole and die (I didnt somehow)so I feel your pain. At least you know your back to the point again where you've done all you can do. I hope you dont mind if I add you to my blog list?

I was so upset when Gini told me! Hopefully in the next few days you will have your number!

niki - thanks for the encouragement - I agree about the hole. I think that I just wanted to be done with the whole paper chase, and I wanted a weekend with my family and no waiting! Oh well, hopefully on tuesday! and of course you can add me to your list~! I added you to mine - where are you by the way?

v - thanks - I wanted to call last night but could not stop crying!
