Court Documents LOST!!

Just a quick post to have people praying. Nine final documents, our USCIS, and FBI clearances that I waited for forever.... along with medicals, police clearances.... have been LOST.

FedEx says it was delivered to the State Department Building in our State along with 20 other documents. However the building has no one by that name that signed for it, and the department that Apostilles the documents never received it. I am just stunned. They needed to be at our agency today to be hand carried over by another couple leaving for Russia this weekend.

Ugh. Please pray that this all gets resolved quickly. The new judge needs the documents prior to our court date. I am copying documents again and getting them re-notarized in case I need to drive to State Department with the boys tomorrow morning. 2.5 hours one way. Ugh.

I hope especially the original docs show up somewhere. I also can't find my cell phone and that would be necessary to receive any updates from FedEx while I am driving around this afternoon. I think Small Fry had it last... but naturally I am clueless to where he put it. It's on silence so I keep dialing it, but I'm hearing nothing.

UPDATE: Found Cell Phone at least. Now to find those documents!

Oh no Jackie!!! I am going to pray specifically for those documents to show up right now. I'm sure you've done this, but I would demand to speak to the driver of the Fedex truck to see where they delivered it. (or at least try too). Keep us posted.

Dima was standing next to me when I just saw your post title. He kept asking "What's wrong?" Can't believe that they are lost! That was Monica's (Following Our Hearts To Russia blog) and my worst fears!! I'm praying now!

Oh my gosh! I can only imagine how frustrated and upset you must be. Things can never be easy with adoption. I'll pray those document appear soon. Good luck!

That very fear ran through my mind as I put my apostilled (and long-awaited) FBI letter in the mail to my agency...and again when they put it in the mail to BG. I come close to knowing how you must feel. Already prayed and will continue. Keep us posted.

Ugh! I know exactly how that feels. Had a document lost at the Ohio State Department for awhile, around the holidays when we were updating things trying to get a court date. I hope they surface soon. Fingers crossed here.

NOOOOO! Huge hugs and prayers from here that they show up. I hope that you don't have to make the trip.
I know how stressful all of this is--

Boo, Fed-Ex :-(

PS the Captsha (sp) thing says "godaidw". I'm not sure what the "w" is for, but I think that's something you need to hear :-)

Lord, you know exactly where those documents are...please direct the right person to lay their hands on them and get them to their destination. You are in control of everything and we praise you for this, Lord. We are unsure why this is happening to Jackie and her family, but Lord, we just ask that you would straighten all of this out to relieve the stress that is rising. We ask all of this expectant that this is going to work out perfectly...just like YOUR plans do. We know Lord that you love this baby boy more than anyone else and that you want to see him in a wonderful family...loved...and we thank you for that. We pray all of this in Jesus precious name. Amen.

Oh, Jackie..I will pray some more later, but I have to tell you that I just know God is going to take care of this! Hang in there!!

Hugs, Kristine
