I probably shouldn’t talk all in adoption-speak for you lovely people who read my blog who have never adopted internationally. US Immigration requires that you get pre-approved to bring orphans into the US. You file an application, the I-600A, go into to get your biometrics (fingerprints) done and then you hopefully get the 171-H in the mail. It seems like a lot of people get this piece of paper pretty quickly. Like a week or two after they get their fingerprints done. But, there are some people who get requests for more information or their fingerprints weren’t good enough and it is drawn out for months. I was afraid that would be us. I am just so excited that this is coming!
We still need a perfect employment letter from Aaron’s company. Which should be here any day now.
And I think I will need to get a couple more copies of our marriage license. Then, we’re done.
Then our dossier will be in the mail to Reed and Scarlett’s country. I am so excited!
