The Homestretch?

I just got word this morning that our homestudy agency has sent notarized copies of our final homestudy to our dossier consultant and the Los Angles office of the USCIS. This is very exciting as it means we are finally in the last stretch of the paper chase. Now it is just a matter of getting our finger prints taken and final approval by Homeland Security in the form of the legendary I71H.

While we are waiting on that next bit of paper, our dossier consultant will be busy getting all of our other docs authenticated by the state and the Chinese government. Once that is done and we have the I71H, everything gets packaged together and gets sent for translation. Then off to China. Yey!

I am making no predictions on the timing of this now. I’ve been bitten way too many times. I just want it all to happen soon so we can at least be in line for brining our daughter home this year. Right now I am just focusing on the fact that we’ve made another big step in our journey.

Blessings to all,
