I've lost Maddie's COC.
Her 'Certificate of Citizenship.'
Yea. I told you I was in trouble.
I can't find it anywhere!
I know exactly where it was in the old house...and I remember saying to myself, I'm going to put it here so it is safe and I can find it when we get to Wyoming.
BUT I CAN'T FIND IT!
I wouldn't be in such a huge hurry to find it, except that I need it to apply for Maddie's social security number.
And I need that social security number so we can file our taxes.
And I need to file our taxes, so we can get our refund.
And I need that refund to BUY OUR HOUSE!
Yes, I know. This is something I should have looked for a long time ago. But I honestly thought I knew where it was.
I was wrong.
And I know. I should have applied for the social security number before we moved. But I was so overwhelmed with the move and everything else it was all I could do to do one adoption thing at a time. And at the time I was concentrating on getting her Kansas birth certificate.
Pray. Please Pray.
I have to find this thing.
Edited to add: I FOUND IT! It was where it should have been all along. Isn't it always?! Somehow I overlooked it the first thirty times I looked in that folder. Thank you for your prayers. Whew! I feel so much better.
