A Praise and a Prayer Request

Our dossier is sitting right here in my house, all authenticated and ready to go to China!  Yay!! That is a Praise the Lord!! We sent it to Washington D.C. to the Dept. of State and the Chinese Consulate for authentication less than 2 weeks ago and it is back already!  Next we will send it to our agency, where it will wait until our last piece of the dossier is ready. 

Yes, there is still one more piece to the dossier puzzle.  A very important piece.  Our I797 approval notice from USCIS.  Here is where your prayers will come in. 

Our USCIS application was received on Dec 9th.  We received our receipt and then our fingerprint appt notices mid December.  We had our biometrics done on Dec 27th, a week or so earlier than our scheduled appt date.  But we have still not been assigned an officer to our case.  I have called twice and emailed them once. They don't like to give out too much info either.  Lol  They just keep telling me that they have 90 days to take care of it.  They didn't buy into my asking for favor because our girls are so cute and have special needs either.  Lol  :)) 
It's kinda funny because the email I got back said and I quote " In addition, per our website, a significant majority of all pending cases are for ‘special needs’ children therefore there is no procedure for expeditious processing with the exception of life-threatening conditions which can be documented by a physician."

Funny, huh?  Well I tried...

Anyway, would you please pray with us that an officer will be assigned soon and will approve us quickly.  I know there are a lot of people in the same boat as us...waiting on USCIS.  It is so frustrating knowing everything is done and ready to go to China, but we are still just waiting on them.  Our process has taken too long already (our homestudy took much longer than we planned).  So we are just really praying that we will catch a break here.  Our little girls are counting on us.  The sooner we get our dossier to China, the sooner we can go get our girls!  So please pray for an officer to be assigned and a quick approval!  Our daughters have been waiting for us for a long time already.  Thank you we appreciate it so much!!

Great pictures! So adorable. It took us a little over 60 days and that is what the lady said it is averaging. Hopefully even quicker for you. So frustrating to wait on them to send the dossier over. Praying you can get those precious girls home soon!

Psalm 139:13-16

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
