Off to USICS

We were finally able to send our I-800A application (USCIS Pre-Approval to Bring Orphan into US) off today! They should receive it tomorrow. Our next step is waiting for them to issue us dates for our finger prints. We will then a wait one more piece of paper that will be placed with the rest of our documents. As soon as we receive this last approval I will have to drive to our state capital to have two documents authenticated and from there ship them to a currier in NYC for the last authentication. Once that is done we can ship all original documents and one set of our copies to our agency. They will then review and send them on to CHINA! :) We are getting closer.

We Got It!

I e-mailed our SW tonight asking if she would check on our clearance that we are still waiting on and she responded back. She received them on Friday and didn't bother to let us know until I emailed her! Can you believe it?!?!

At any rate, we have them and thank the Lord there were no other issues. Now praying the home study and our fingerprints clear USCIS.

Hey Leslie, just maybe we WILL be traveling together. Only time will tell.

I can hardly believe it! We received our PA for Evan today. It sure would be nice to top this week off with news that our final clearance is back. Maybe I can have our SW call and see how things are going! LOL Praying for more good news!

Only One Left!

That is all we have. Our home state child abuse clearances finally came back after 9 1/2 wks! Now we wait for state #3 which should have been back by now had the paperwork been submitted on day one instead of days AFTER our home study was completed. Who's keeping track though. ;)

We should have all of our documents back from the consulate by the end of the week. We sent them off to stop all the dates from expiring as we did not want to take the chance of having to re-do any paperwork. The only thing we will have to send in will be our home study and I800.

We are getting closer! Oh and did you notice that Evan is no longer listed on the WC list!?!? He was removed sometime on Friday. :)
