Where for art thou??

Here is what's happening........Nothing.
We have been at a standstill for almost a month waiting on my Passport. I applied for it FOREVER ago and now it is holding us up! In reality, according to my calculations i sent off for it about 12 weeks ago...so I feel like it should be here anyday. But, it is starting to bug me that it is holding up our whole process. I have emailed the Passport people but they are so overloaded right now that they don't email me back. Oh well. I guess I shall wait. And wait. :)

After all of my whining heres a look on the bright side- Once we have my passport our Dossier will be completley done! yahoo!

Hi Tara-
Hang in there, mine came at about 13 weeks so this may be your lucky week! It's so frustrating though! Have you already received your CIS approval? We sent in our homestudy the first week of July and still haven't even gotten our finger printing appt yet. So I'm also going crazy thinking that's the only thing holding us up from being added to the "waiting" list. I hope it comes soon!

I loved your comments on our names- you're too funny! Actually- your top 2 choices are also our top 2- so we're on the same page and I'm extra appreciative of all the nice things you said about those two names! Alright- you guys need to get things moving we want a family to travel with us! Did you look your passport aplication up online to check the status?
Have you heard how long CIS takes to approve in your area? We just got our fingerprinting appt today. I've heard 30 days here but not sure if that's from the time of fingerprinting or when all the paperwork was handed in. Can you email me offline so we can chat more, I've got some other stuff I wanted to ask you? wewillbringthemhome@gmail.com

I Hope the passport was in the mailbox today!

Did the email you sent get kicked back? I didn't get anything? Weird?

I'm sorry you are feeling frusterated! It is sure to come soon. I know how hard the waiting can be, so I'll pray that your passport is comming, maybe today, maybe in your mailbox right now. Now you know if it is waiting for you when you come home it was because I put in a good word for you. And if not, sorry to get your hopes up, but we'll keep praying.

I saw that I had an email from you before I got on a plane this morning but just got home and will check email later tonight. :) - my husband jokes that I stalk people too. The other day he said man, this Tara has something to say about everything! I told him we're in eachother's fan clubs! I love the getting comments!

I feel your pain. I'm in the same boat... all the dossier paperwork has been completed and I'm waiting for my passport so I can get the dossier to Uzbekistan!

I found your blog from a link from another. I hope you don't mind my visiting.
