Well, Senator Portman's office has been very helpful. I'm feeling bad right now because I ended up crying on the phone the last time with them. I use to be so tough. I never cried. I've been paper pregnant for so long by this point that I can't help it now. Thinking of Keith laying there hungry is doing me in.
I spoke with our USCIS officer just prior to my breakdown. That officer tried to tell me that I shouldn't have sent a check at all (it is required that you send a certain amount per child besides the 1st child with your I800!). She was NOT happy at all that she had an email from our Senator's office. I expressed that I knew that the issue was at the lockbox and not her. I repeated that over and over, but to no avail. She seemed quite ticked off. The whole conversation didn't go well at all. She just kept saying that I needed to be patient. She was not happy.
That I guess was my breaking point. I surely don't want the next person who gets a hold of our paperwork to already be ticked off at me. Keith is waiting and he needs people to do their best. :(
The Senator's representative was very nice. She was even patient while I cried. Poor her! I really did use to be better than this. I would have never cried on the phone with someone before now.
We do have SIM #s that were issued today. Prayerfully the check will show up as cashed today. (PLEASE PRAY!) Please also pray that the officer will process the paperwork quickly when it gets to her and that it gets to her quickly. I'm spent at the moment and may have to go have a very long cry. No one knows still why the paperwork sat there that long and wasn't processed. I don't even care as long as it happens quickly and God brings my baby boy home quickly. I think I may have to be a hermit and crawl into a cave for awhile. I think anything else could make me begin to bawl at the drop of a hat. :(
LOTS OF PRAYERS PLEASE FOR KEITH AND THAT PAPERWORK!!
