No Luck @ the embassy…yet


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!

  1. It is funny how that happens, isn’t it? You never know how people are going to respond to the news. Molly’s tae kwon do instructor asked us to consider adopting a child from India next. (I didn’t tell him that we weren’t even allowed to.)

    Get some good sleep this weekend so you can stay up all night on Sunday. 🙂
