That is how I feel today! I was so excited over the weekend we got our "invitation" from immigration to get our fingerprints done. Yippee...except that it was absolutely the worst day and time possible, actually impossible! ALL of our school-aged kids had 1/2 days, school parties, and Adam was working. There was just no way it was going to happen, and it seriously pained me to contemplate sending that form back with the box checked off to reschedule us. We heard from other families that they went in and successfully got fingerprinted when it wasn't their appointed day/time. We decided to venture off to immigration with our papers, passports, and prayers and WOOHOO they took us no problem and we were in and out in 10 minutes!
To back up just a bit, last night as I was getting little ones ready for bed, there was a knock on the door. I opened the door to find 4 fireman from our local firehouse standing before me with bags of groceries....Christmas dinner times 2 from our Mayor and township council! It was such a wonderful surprise and blessing! 2 turkeys, 2 pumpkin pies, and all the yummy fixings that make a Christmas dinner complete! I have a sneaking suspicion that the WONDERFUL ladies at our township building had something to do with this gift! We are in their office at least once (many times several times) a week asking for notarization, faxing, scanning, and emailing of oodles of adoption paperwork. They are so, so lovely and helpful to us! We are so thankful and appreciative! God is so good to us and blesses us abundantly!
