The adoption paralegal just called. The twit police officer who took my fingerprints a few weeks ago did it poorly, and they were smudged. The state adoption office has rejected them. Bastards, all. I now have to go pay to do it again, and wait until next Wednesday to get it done. I'll be getting a letter from my lawyer's office about the crappy first version, and trying to get around the fee again.
The delays seem interminable. If I weren't in such a fabulous state of mind, I'd think that the state was dragging its heels. It is hard to know which public employee is the gem and which is the imbecile who scored less than 70% on their civil service exam and sucks at their job. And votes Christian Right, and saw that we are both women. Not that all Christian Right voters are idiots; clearly not, since this country is in the quagmire at home and abroad that Bush has led us into.
Now I'm grumpy.
