It took an "N" to get us OUT!

Well, what an incredible 24 hours since last night. I wish I had time to write in detail, but I am so estatic I just can't sit still at my computer. I will add ALL the details tomorrow, but in short:

At 9:00 am this morning, I grabbed my cellphone, realized it was dead, charged it. When I power cycled, I had 3 messages, very unusual. Yep, you guessed it two of them were from my attorney left yesterday at 4:30pm. They didn't sound good "I have information on your file, call me."

So, off to work - calling Gary, cell phone still didn't have charge, plus it was VERY early in Guatemala. So, I couldn't return the lawyer's call yet. Got to work and sent him e-mail instead.

And he called. I had Anne in the office with me, because my lawyer's broken English is a little hard to understand at times. So, he says the letter "N" was the reason we were not OUT of PGN. It seems, when our "resolution" was written up, Mr. Barrios left out the second "N" in my name. Thank goodness this was caught now and not after all the new birthcertificates and documents had been issued in the wrong name.

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - spent all day thinking, crazy! The letter "N"???? Well, I'm good with Dona. I can probably just go ahead and change my name, Prince did it. Then, - at 8:30 pm tonight, we got the call!!!!

Mr. Barrios already resigned, gave me my second "N" and we're already at the pick-up window as of 4:15pm Guat time !!!

AMEN!!! Alleluiah!!! Praise JESUS!!!


more later...... ;-)
