Well, it's been a long time since we have posted anything. We were out of town for a week and now it's time to get back into the swing of things. We came home to find a package on our front door. We opened it to find our fingerprint cards had been sent back! We were hoping they were almost finished, but we forgot to sign them. What is going on with us?! On a lighter note, we did already get our Dept. of social services back in under a week. We were told about 3 or 4. Thank goodness for connections again. Charlie sits on a board with someone from Dept. of SS, not sure if I mentioned that. Ohhhhhhh we also had our psych evals on Wednesday! That was fun. I'm not sure how many of you have had to take one of those standardized tests, but wow. The first one had almost 600 questions. Who comes up with these questions and how in the world do they determine anything? I felt like I was going to fall apart just filling in all of those bubbles. It took the better part of 2 hours! That is another good story. When Charlie called we were told that we wouldn't be able to get in until after January I think. Of course that wouldn't work for us! We have found that if you explain the situation, once again people are more compelled to help. We got an appointment in under a week. The next thing we have to do is the FBI investigation! I can't believe all this. This is supposed to take 6-8 weeks. If you have been reading any of these posts, you know that we don't like to wait. Charlie works with someone that has a friend that used to do investigations for the FBI! Let's cut that time down by 5 weeks or so. I think that is everything as far as the process goes. We are still getting things done and doing what we need to get our baby home! Of course, this is still leaving us no time to fund raise. We are just praying that everyone can find it in their hearts to help us out in any little way they can. Even if it's just forwarding our information or giving us some spare change from under the couch cushion! I have faith!
