First a shout out to the wonderful ladies who work at our agency,Faith International...they have been on top of everything and have been helping us with these new steps in the adoption process. They have been in constant contact with the USCIS to find out where we stood in the process,gently nudging where and when they could do so.We love working with these ladies!
We heard from our agency today that the USCIS has approved our status and the approval is in the mail. Our agency was hoping to convince them to email it so that we could get started on the authentication of that last paper we need to be DTC (papers "Dossier" to China). Unfortunately they would only snail mail it, so we wait. We are not going to make the date we needed to; however, our agency feels that we are going to be close enough that things will go without any major problems. We ask for your continued prayers that we can get the paper, have it authenticated,and all our papers sent to China in a timely manner. We would appreciate additional prayers that China will grant us a grace period and accept our paperwork even if it is a few days late.
