This is the short version of a very long day. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ At 7 a.m. I saw that our UPS package could "not" be delivered to Bulgaria? Even though it was there. It has all of our last documents. Tom called UPS, they said the e-mail was a virus!! Not to open and that things were just held up in customs. However, they were scheduled to be delivered 4/4 and they weren't. :o( ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ At 9 a.m. our USCIS worker called about our I800. It needed the expenses of the adoption broken down more on page 8 and it needed a more broken down list of expenses, like airfare,hotel,passport cost etc. UGH! And then she sprung the big one- Hope turns 18 on June 24th, we must amend the I800A with a Supplement #3 and #1. The cost is another $445.00. With an addendum on our Home Study, plus asking all adults here about their criminal backgrounds.(remember, two adults here are mentally retarded) I cried. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I can't tell you how many times last year I thought that we should have added Hope at age 17 as an adult. But I thought the boys would be home way before she turned 18. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I feel beaten and battered. This will set us back. Bulgaria takes the whole month of July off. I have no clue when the boys come home and this also sets things back for Noah, Moses and Jacob.
