Adoption Update


That my friends, is our i600A form heading off to the USCISSCIS whatever, office on Monday. It arrived safe and sound on Tuesday. I was so nervous sending it off with the check. And I mail a bigger check than that every month for our mortgage. But this check made me sweat. I wanted to hand deliver it. But I trusted UPS and they delivered. And now we count. Our SW is saying there's about a 100 day wait on approval so that's our estimate on about when our dossier will be complete. And then we wait for a referral. Some of you have asked about when we should get our child. We don't know for sure, but we have an estimate. Until then we're keeping things hush hush on the bloggy front. Don't wanna jinx it, and we'd like to keep this at least semi private until it's kind of a done deal with a referral. I will tell you we're still asking for a girl, would like twins but hear they are incredibly rare. So you'll still hear about Ling Ling. We are sending our periodic adoption updates via email to friends and family. If you aren't on the list and would like to be, shoot me an email heyshannyATgmailDOTcom.
