Delay in Updated Referral Information
Our agency's contact in Bulgaria keeps rescheduling their visit to the twins orphanage. Our referral information is two years old. We asked for updated information at least two months ago. The agency in Bulgaria scheduled a visit for the 3rd week in April. Then it was rescheduled to the 1st week of June. Now, I just received a message that the visit has been rescheduled to June 27th. Apparently the summer season is already beginning over there, so staff is limited. On a positive note, we completed our 2nd of 3 home study visits last night. Our agency also requested that we have all of our completed dossier paperwork apostilled this week and forwarded for translation. I found out that there is an office only 20 minutes away where I can walk in and have the paperwork apostilled immediately. This is much better that mailing back and forth. That alone will save us about 2 weeks time. Still no word from the FBI on my prints. I keep hoping to find my clearance letter in the mailbox. My concern is that they still will not be able to get a sufficient print to run the criminal checks. I do not want to start from scratch again. Hopefully, I will not have to!
