After finding out that Windstream had blocked (?) my international calling privileges I called Verizon and added and international calling plan that is actually better than Windstream’s! I talked to a woman named Elizabeth at Verizon and only told her a less than 10 second version of why I needed this international calling plan to which she got choked up and thanked me right then and again at the end of our call for being willing to take a child into our home. She said she was so glad to get to talk to me. So strange the responses we get some times. I have to believe that God is touching people on some level with even the smallest bits of information.
I called the Embassy two times…talking only to a receptionist. She sent me to the two extensions I requested. One had a full voicemail box, so it sent me back to her and the other had a message that said, “We are sorry, no one can help you at this time. Please call back at another time. Good-bye” (click) So disappointing. And by this time it was 11:30pm, remember that 12 hour time difference?? Anyway, I guess I will try again Sunday, and then Monday, and then….well you get the idea. Hopefully at some point I will get through and be able to give a bona fide update as to where we are, which will also give us better details on travel dates. Blessings on your day!
