Fortunately... we received our state police clearances in the mail on Thursday.
Unfortunately... when I requested them, I forgot to let them know that they need to be notarized. :::sigh::: I don't know what I was thinking. On Friday, I went back to the sheriff's department and was able to get the phone number to the other office that sends them out. They were able to look up the documents and said that they will send them out again, notarized this time. I let her know that the notary can not expire within the next twelve months and she said she would write a note, but no guarantees. Keep praying.
