Ready to Rumble



Today I should have received news that we would be traveling in 9 days.  Instead I received another one of those heart stopping emails:


Traci
The dossier was returned to me yesterday. They didn't like the POLICE clearance. They think it is just a copy inspite of the fact that you say it is an original and notary certifies your signature.
We neeed to get the paper from police with signature and the stamp. In case the police department issues only copies, there must be a letter explailing this. The letter must have the signature and stamp.
Can you get the original of police clearance or the letter explaining why they issue copies?
I can ressubmit the dossier on Thursday, do you think it is possible to get this docs this soon?
Also I will need one affedavit for Intepol check and one copy of each passport, because SDA already sent them to Interpol. When I resubmit the dossier they will have to do it again. 
It does put us back, but I couldn't do anything with the situation...

My dear friend Sue shared this scripture with me:

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 2 Cor. 4:8-9a

There is no doubt that this is a battle, but you know what? 

 IT HAS ALREADY BEEN WON!

Scott is on his way home from work.  We will together go to the state police and throw ourselves on their mercy to issue new clearances today.  (they really like to do things in 2 weeks)
I will go downtown, I will sit in the "Traci Heim Adoption Sherpa Chair" at the appostille office, and I will visit my favorite DHL service provider.  
If it doesn't happen today, it will be done Monday. 
If not Monday, then Tuesday.
If not Tuesday, then Wednesday...
We will not stop.  
We will not falter.  
WE WILL NOT BACK DOWN.

After all...

These things I have spoken to you that in Me you may have peace.  In the world you will have tribulation, but take courage; I HAVE OVERCOME THE WORLD. -John 16:33
