The good news is we have an officer for our i800A application with USCIS. I spoke to her on the phone on Friday afternoon. The bad news is we got the dreaded request for evidence. Basically, an important date on one of our child background clearances was left out of our homestudy. I, immediately, emailed and called our homestudy social worker. She had already left for the weekend and will be returning to her office today, Tuesday. Please, pray that she will be able to get me the information I need this morning! Our Immigration's officer has said we should have our approval within 24 hours of getting this information to her.
It was sad, yesterday, to open the Request for Evidence knowing that had one date not been missing, it would have been our approval. As we face one more bump in the road, we stand firm in believing that God has our best intentions at heart. He is working behind the scenes for us and His timing is best. We will continue to do everything possible to keep moving swiftly towards our boys.
As soon as I have our approval, I will be driving to Richmond to get it and the final documents for our dossier apostilled. Then, we'll be mailing that package to the boys' country and waiting to hear about travel dates. Travel dates to meet our boys. We're coming, Samuel and Joseph, just hang on.
Please, continue to pray for Sam and Joe's protection and that their needs are being met.
Pray, Adopt, Advocate, Support...Do Something!
