I know everyone makes mistakes. Ordinarily I try to be very understanding and forgiving when others make honest mistakes, knowing how frequently it happens to me. Today though, I am not in the mood to be understanding.
My agency made a mistake. They “accidentally” didn’t send our paperwork to the embassy in China 2 1/2 weeks ago. I didn’t know this, so I have been happily crossing off the days on the calendar knowing that today we would be officially waiting for our Travel Approval from China.
When I didn’t hear anything by today, I e-mailed my agency to find out the situation, and they admitted that they had not forwarded on my paperwork until this past Wednesday. Now I have to wait another 2 weeks until we move on to waiting for our Travel Approval. 2 weeks is not the end of the world., I know this. But my heart, my kids here, and my dear girl in China have been waiting long enough! To have to wait a pointless 2 weeks at this point is breaking my heart.
