So.. things are moving forward! Again? Finally??!! I'm not really sure, but either way, it feels good!!
We went to USCIS to get fingerprinted on 6/29 & within EIGHT days we received our approval letter!!! We are so excited. It makes it feel a little more real and like we are one step closer to bringing our child home! : )
Talked to agency today and our dossier packet is on it's way to us & we should get it tomorrow or Thursday. Then we can begin gathering all our documents and paperwork (AGAIN!) to bring with us when we take the trip to our agency in Pittsburgh! (Were hoping to go at the end of August before I start school, but will most likely not be until 2nd or 3rd week of Sept. after we finish our mandatory 10 week prep course!) Once the course is complete & we have all our paperwork organized and together.. we will begin our official wait for a referral! (Sigh) Both of us feel very confident and very good about our decision and our agency. Everything just feels "right" this time, and it feels so good to just be really excited and hopeful again!!
Thanks to everyone for all your thoughts and support! : )
