There have been a few heroes along our journey and today I'm adding a new one to our list and will simply refer to her as Ms. M.
Ms. M is one of the many employees in one of the many feds' offices we've contacted since hearing the news last Wednesday that we may not travel to pick up our son. Turns out, Ms M is a grandmother of not one, but two, adopted grandchildren. She's in the know. She gets it. And...she's a government official in the very department we need an advocate right now. We bow down to her.
About an hour ago, we received an update from the NH office that our file has been located, is being entered into the U.S. system and will be processed to Addis within the next 24-48 hours.
We thank you and our family thanks you. We are forever grateful.
I am now going to bed and plan to sleep for eight *gasp* hours. Yes, I really am.
