I knew that our facilitator had been very unsure about that one since early on and kept asking questions about it. But it was what our homestudy agency had required and sounded like the State clearance that we needed. But alas, when submitted, it was discovered that we needed a State police clearance with hard copy fingerprints. The government of Ukraine was giving our facilitator 2 weeks to get the correct document submitted.
Problem...the State informed me that it would be 2-3 weeks for our results to be processed and returned to US, let alone get across the Atlantic Ocean AND it was late Thursday afternoon before Memorial Day weekend!
We ran to the police station, they were great as was the State giving me the information. We felt as though everyone was trying to help us. The State informed us though that they couldn't expedite this but process in the order received.
So we took it to the top. We prayed. We prayed that it would be miraculously fast and if not, then the government of Ukraine would accept it late.
We overnighted the prints Thursday to arrive at the State processing on Friday. Then we went into the long weekend, Sat, Sun, Monday. The following Saturday, they arrived in our mailbox. Less than 9 days INCLUDING the holiday weekend! We were so excited and thankful for God's mercies to us. We sent the documents Federal Express, but they arrived late in the day Thursday, the day they had to be turned in. The offices were closed.
They were submitted by our super facilitator:) the next morning and accepted
God answered both prayers! Isn't He wonderful?! Awesome!!
