Most of us in the adoption community have at least one shipping/delivery nightmare story. We have two! I can now safely say FedEx has seen the light and all is well :) Our LOA was shipped next day express from our agency in Alabama yesterday. I became concerned when I couldn't track the package for today's delivery. Apparently out here in the boonies we don't have Saturday delivery, despite the fact we've received numerous shipments on Saturday, but none as precious as this package. I admit, I am resourceful and persistent. What's more, we tracked the package to the OKC depot, but we weren't allowed to pick it up without the shipper's consent, and even then there was no guarantee the staff would cooperate and pull the package. Once again, Karla saves the day! We went to the depot, armed with Karla's cell number, the tracking number, and the name of the FedEx rep that approved the request. At first attempt, there was no budging, but when Clayton explained that this was the paper allowing us to bring our son home from China, things started happening! The staff was more than willing to locate the package, allow us to sign the document and return ship within 30 minutes. The same thing happened in 2004 with Kayden's referral. The two most important packages of our lives - I'd say they were worth jumping through hoops to get to! And this is why we chose to drive to Tulsa to sign Kambry's LOA last February :) Bottom line, the LOA is on its way to Alabama, guaranteed Monday delivery and should be in China on Wednesday. Next step, TA! Thank you, God, for being in the details!
