Just the little blessing I needed tonight...

We think we found the solution to our pool situation.  As you know, we have a pool net, but the state will not approve us to adopt (except a child over 6) with the net.  The law is written you have to have either a pool fence or self-closing, self-latching doors, so that is what is needed to adopt.  Our doors are self-closing, but the previous owners did not put in a latch that meets city code, meaning one over 58 inches high (or something like that).  If you have a sliding door, you can find about a million latches.  It's not so easy, though, to find a latch that will work on the types of doors we have leading out back (double doors).  David and I think we found the solution; latches sold at http://www.watchdoglatch.com/wdl.html

We ordered the latches this afternoon, and I realized there was no way to choose a shipping method.  We had planned to have them expedited so that we could get them on quickly and notify the judge so that she could continue with our paperwork.  I had to pay through paypal, so I decided just to add a note that we needed them ASAP for our adoption approval and that we would be willing to pay for expedited shipping if we could get it.

Guess what came today?  Yes, the SAME day we ordered it.  Our latches.  The company is apparently based in Tempe (which is about 40 minutes away from where we live) and they DROVE the latches to our house for us today.  I am in awe and so touched that they would take time from their day to do that for us.  Talk about AMAZING customer service!!  With gas prices they way they are, there is no way it was cheaper for them to do that.  They did it out of kindness, and it was just the blessing that I needed today.  So, thank you, to the amazing latch man on the motorcycle.  Your kindness brought tears to my eyes!
