almost There

So we have started the process to make Z a citizen. Do to the circumstance on the way she came home from HAiti this step was not done. (LOng story) any who , we are getting ready to send in the paper work to get this done. For those of you who read my blog and are not familar with the process we have to take Z to a civil surgeon. This is a doctor who has been trained to fill out a form for the USCIS (imagration) . I took her there last week only to find out that she had to get 4 shots.UGGG so I had the TB test done and made a doctors appointment to see her regular doc. She was not happy at all and my mothers gulit was in full force at the doc. appointment and i told Z she could get any toy see wanted (with in reason) once we were done.

So we went back to the civil surgeon on Tue. and was able to see the doc. he looked her over checked her shot records and filled out the form. So now we have to fill out more forms and send in the medical forms.

Filling out these form have made me laugh some of the questions we have to answer, keep in mind these questions are asked about Z's intentions in the USA.

Have you EVER with in the past 10 years been a prostitue or procured anyone for prostitution, or intend to engage in such activities in the future?
Do you plan to practice polygamy in the United States?
Killng a person?
Associated with the Nazi party?
This is just a sample of the questions. made me laugh.
So we will send in all the forms and hopfully everything will go great and we will be done.
