So my son was born in April. We filed for his passport in May. The standard waiting time for a baby born overseas is six to eight weeks. Well, it's now September and we have gotten absolutely nothing. If they had needed more stuff, they would have sent us a letter requesting documents or information, but we haven't even gotten that. I wrote to the embassy in London three times. I received one response from them saying it was processing but they couldn't give me any more info. That was about two months ago. In that time, we already were able to go to Bulgaria and get him his Bulgarian birth certificate and passport, so he can at least travel around with my wife. But, as it currently stands, if we wanted to go to the U.S., which we do want to for Christmas and New Year's, we'd have to get him a tourist visa. Which would be hilarious to do, honestly, because that would require us to go through the embassy in London, and I would LOVE to create problems for them with that one. So after no success, I wrote to my state rep (Republican Erik Paulsen) and one of my senators (Democrat Al Franken). Tried to write to my other senator (Democrat Amy Klobuchar), but she required I print out the form, sign it, and mail it, the other only required an e-mail. The fact he's five months old (on Friday) and has zero documentation indicating his U.S. citizenship is unacceptable to us. I'm also going to the JAG when I get back to see what my options are there. The MPS, who we filed through, said that once it leaves their office, it's in the embassy's hands and out of theirs, so they have been no help. Gonna be fun!
