Is this for real?? (imagine "for real" in a high pitched tone)

So... many of you know that our paperwork was held up in Georgia for quite a while. After talking to our agency today I found out that 3 counties in Georgia had NEVER county certified any docs for Ethiopian adoptions (for real?) - Georgia friends, change this! There are 4.5 million orphans in Ethiopia who need a loving family and a home. Georgia, home to Coca-Cola and Chick-fil-A, is a great place to grow up....

Also, one of the county offices our paperwork got stuck in was delayed even longer because the office didn't have internet access! (for real??)

Now, the good news is that our paperwork has been to Washington, D.C. and back!! It would have headed straight to Ethiopia today, BUT a freak snowstorm kept our case worker in Minnesota. (for real??...snowstorm on the first day of spring delays us one more day?!)

(photo of actual Oklahoma snowstorm that delayed our paperwork, seemed worth documenting - stolen from

Are these ridiculous delays for real?? Sometimes, they don't seem like it. But, we know that they are...they are as real as the baby God has chosen to be a Palmer...And His perfect timing is real...
