I600 approval, BUT....

***********UPDATE************
Lucky for me, the agency we're working with is AMAZING! Who would have guessed I'd get an email response at 6:45 on a Friday night! I was told, "not to stress about this" (easier said than done, but I'll try!) and that this would be taken care of first thing on Monday. It was also suggested to me that this might not even be a problem that needs fixing. The actual documents were already sent on, and what I received was just a notification. So, I suppose there is a chance, that on the official documentation her name is spelled correctly. This process is so strange at times...it's strange to put so much faith in others doing their jobs...bringing our daughter home depends on it. So, until Monday we'll wait...
*******************************

This afternoon I watched the mail truck stop at our mail box and I debated going out right away to see what had come. I had this feeling it might be worth my while, but I talked myself out of going into the freezing cold by reminding myself there was no way our approval could have come. After all, it had only been 48 hours since I was told I would have it in 6-8 business days. I ran an errand right before dinner and got the mail at 4:45 and my jaw dropped when I saw THE envelope. Then, my jaw dropped again, when I looked a bit more closely at our document. Everything is perfect except for the spelling of our daughters name. They spelled her Korean name wrong!!!! A visa can't be issued for an incorrect name!!!!!!!!!!! I immediately sent an email to our adoption agency to see what needs to be done to fix this ASAP but, it was close to 5:00 on a Friday so it's going to be a long weekend while I wait for news. I will embarrassingly admit to having a good cry after Jeff came home. This whole process is so emotionally charged....my daughter is living on the other side of the world and I just want her home! I think I'm done crying for the night and am ready to indulge in some pizza and a lot of chocolate ice cream. Chocolate helps everything, right???
