We are still waiting on our homestudy to be done. We have been told we should have the first draft by this Friday, and I am really hoping that will be the case! Then if everything looks okay to us and our placement agency, it has to be sent to the State of Colorado to be approved. That is one of the requirements of our state. I'm hoping that it won't take too long to get that part done, because I am very anxious to get our stuff sent to USCIS. I have "heard" that I800A's are being processed relatively quickly lately. I'm hoping we can get ours in while this is still the case. If there's anyone reading this that can either confirm this or has experienced something different recently, please leave a comment and let me know! :) The quicker that part is done, the sooner we can send our dossier!
Our dossier for China seems to be somewhat easy I'm excited to say. Although I use the term easy loosely. We are not done with it yet, and my only other experience with putting together a dossier is the one we did for Ukraine. And anyone who has adopted from Ukraine knows that Ukraine's dossier is certainly not easy (kind of a big pain in the rear really). Ha!
It seems like things are moving super slow. I know, it's only been a couple months. And I really wish I had some updated pictures of our girl. But since I don't, I will have to just share this one again. I never get tired of looking at her sweet face! I just wanna go get her and give her big hugs and kisses! I want to get through all of this time consuming paperwork and just bring our little girl home! I absolutely cannot wait to meet her!
Isn't she just so beautiful?!?
Well, that is about it for my update. Please pray that our homestudy gets done super fast and that we can get through the USCIS part quickly too! Thank you!!
It's hard to believe we were back in Ukraine on our 2nd trip last year on this day getting all the last pieces of paperwork ready so we could pick up our girls from the orphanage forever! And a year ago today we FOR SURE weren't thinking we would be sending our paperwork back to USCIS to bring another daughter home! :) But I'm so glad we are!!! Thank you God for allowing us to do this again!!
