Brian is heading to the assessor's office (again) in an attempt to get the last document we need for our adoption. Please pray that they agree to give us the letter with the necessary information. They have given us a letter back in February, but not with all of the information we need, only what they typically provide for adoptions. They have no regard for what specific countries require. Also, since that original letter is now over 5 months old, it has since expired. ::: sigh ::: Why is this so complicated? It really isn't that difficult. They have spent more time with us in person and on the phone telling us "NO!" than they would if they would just write the letter. I wish there was a federal law that would make banks, mortgage companies, assessor's offices, etc. have to comply and provide the necessary documentation... without grief!
