I like to be on top of things. So, I decided not to wait to long to work on Joash's US paperwork. Since I am a US citizen, Joash can be a US citizen as well, which will be really advantageous for his future.
So, in December I figured out what I needed to do. I sent away to Halifax for the paperwork I would need. I received this paperwork last week and worked hard on in. Once I had everything, I needed to make an appointment with the US Consulate in Halifax.
Well, today I called to make my appointment. I had to leave a message and they called back. I was impressed that they actually called me back the same day.
But soon my hopes were dashed.
It seems that between the time they sent me the forms I needed and today, the State Department decided to update all of its forms for this process. So, the Consulate is not taking any appointments until the forms are updated. Grr! So they took my information down and will send me the forms I need once they are updated.
So, I am a bit frustrated since I spent a lot of time getting everything I needed and filling out forms that won't even be used now.
Oh government paperwork. I have a feeling this will not be the last of frustrations with bureaucracy.
