Murphy's Law

It appeared! It actually arrived in the mailbox!!! YEA!!!!

But before anyone gets REAL, JUMP UP AND DOWN excited, let me just say that they did NOT have accurate information on our 171-H. So, it has to be sent out to us again. LOL. It is almost comical. ALMOST. It almost makes me laugh. ALMOST. I am on the verge of one of those "laughing is the best medicine" episodes. But I am not there yet. I will be if this takes much longer. Maybe this is an easy fix. We will hope and pray that it is.

I have emailed everyone I know to email. Ms. Bone at CIS has not gotten back to me EVER (no real surprise there). I have requested that she resubmit the approval with the accurate information. I have emailed Ms. Rust at our state rep's office. I have emailed our agency, Small World...etc etc. Now, we just wait again for the SECOND version (the accurate one including MY name on it...not just Van's). Our agency is very understanding. I hope that China will be. They are checking with their China rep. All I know at this point is that we will process the 171-H that we have in our possession, and then when the accurate document comes in, we will also process that one and send it to China. I have no idea if that means that we will still be sending THIS one to China now. I am waiting on a response to that question.

The funny thing is that this is the SECOND time that CIS has done this to us. We had this happen when we adopted Gracie. Just par for the course, I guess.

I am hopeful that this will be very easy to handle. I think that since we have the approval in our hands, CIS and Ms. Bone (Van calls her Ms. Bonehead, sorry, but had to say it) should just be able to SPIT OUT another one that is correct.
Don't you just love the cat picture? I am trying HARD to keep my sense of humor. LOL.
