Approaching the Finish Line

Last Saturday I received an email from AWAA telling me that only one of our police clearance letters had made it to their office. (Well, hasn't that been the trend for our family!? Like it was going to happen any other way, right?) Our Family Coordinator had my letter, but Dustin's was missing in action.

I was dreading this mistake taking another 2+ weeks to be sorted out. Thankfully, our Family Coordinator went to bat for us yesterday and convinced the County Attorney's Office to allow us drive to Mesa and pick up Dustin's police clearance letter.

Strange thing was the County Attorney's Office didn't have a copy of my letter in their file.

(Who knows who else in the court system has mine!? They are a mess over there right now since the commissioner who used to handle these cases retired and his replacements are splitting the case load between what seems to be two or three offices. Oh, so efficient!)

So, as things stand now, AWAA is mailing my original police clearance letter, which they received at their office in Tucson, to us here. And, Dustin's letter is in our possession now.

People, our dossier is locked and loaded! I just need the mailman to bring me my clearance letter and I can kiss that sucker goodbye.

I cannot wait to get that pile of paper outta my hands.

We *should* have a court date on the books before April is up.

Do I dare get my hopes up that this was the last of our hurdles to surmount in bringing A* home?

Yea, I don't think I'll go that far...... but just being here feels pretty wonderful. That's enough for today.

I think this is called "longsuffering". What an ordeal! I pray it's the segue to welcoming your little one home ... at last.
