And THIS is what caused my mini freak out.
Our beautiful adoption application and dossier that HOURS upon HOURS of blood (literally), sweat (literally) and tears (literally) brought about. It was a very very hard thing for me to hand this packet (82 pages + pictures by the way) over to the UPS lady. I seriously debated driving it to Fairhope, AL and placing it into my agency’s hands but then I convinced myself that that would be crazy because it is a 3 1/2 hour drive and I’m not crazy…right? So, I mailed it…overnight…tracking…all that good stuff.
And then…it got lost. LOST! According to UPS it was delivered at 10:42am this past Thursday but when I called the agency this morning the lady I talked to said that they never received it. Cue the panic. I called the main UPS number, I called the UPS store it was shipped to and no one could find it but they said they would look into it and get back to me. My heart is racing about a million times faster than it should be and I can’t get any work done. For anyone who has ever completed international adoption paperwork you will understand.
So as I am freaking out I finally decide that I have to get down on my knees and pray that this packet will be found. I literally barely get down on my knees when my phone rings. UPS lady….packet found!!! Wow! Isn’t God cool!?!
