Our fingerprints were to expire in Sept. of 2009 and they put the same date....except they put 2008. I know you can't believe there would be a mistake on paperwork that we have WAITED FOR 90 DAYS to receive. I went to the kitchen for a glass of wine immediately. I could see our travel dates slip farther and farter away. The only silver lining I see in this.....we had a misspelling on our I171 with Claire and I remember they were fast at correcting that and resending. Maybe it will only take a couple of weeks. I have to go back to the wine bottle now....I will let you know more after I speak to someone at Homeland Security tomorrow. Please pray that I remain calm for Kevin's sake and appeal to the person's human side.
I raced in the door to find that he had opened the brown envelope and laid the paperwork out nicely on my side of the bed so that I would see it first thing upon entering the bedroom. I looked lovingly at the paperwork with a peaceful mellow feeling, and immediately became filled with sorrow.
I was elated when my husband called and said the I171 was here. Imagine how good I felt this afternoon, knowing that the last dreaded piece of paperwork was safely at home to begin it cert/auth journey tomorrow. I was almost giddy the rest of the afternoon.
