One BIG step closer


Our dossier left for Korea yesterday around 2:00!!!!

I was so surprised when I got the mail and saw the USCIS return address. It has only been a little over 4 weeks since we sent in our I600A and a little over 1 week since our fingerprinting!! I am so relieved to have it on its way!

We celebrated at Cold Stone last night. I had been holding on to a gift card that I got for Christmas. (Thanks John and Dani!!)


So begins our countdown! (The latest on referrals is about 6 to 8 months.)

Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear. Is 65:24

  1. Oh wow!! My approval took 11 looooong weeks. Virginia is really picking up speed. That is very encouraging to know!!! (for 1-600 approvals!!)
    CONGRATS!!! This is a huge huge milestone, as you know. I am so excited for your family!

  5. How WONDERFUL!! I am so happy for you. I LOVE Cold Stone... a great place to celebrate!
    Will you get a # each month (we did for Ethiopia) or do you just get a call in 6-8 months?

  8. That's a really exciting milestone! I'm glad to be following your journey.

    To answer your question, most of the families I met through my blog. There are lots of bloggers in my area! There is also a Yahoo group that I joined, Adopt Korea. You could post a message on there asking if anyone lives in your area. That would be a good way to meet other families.

  9. Exciting!! Glad to see a new visitor to our Blog. Thanks for stopping by and saying hi. I always like to have new followers, especially others on this same journey. It is encouraging for us all I think! You have a beautiful family (minus 1). By the way, love the name and the shirts. Did you guys make those on your own? I must buy some when payday comes around :) Looking forward to following your journey.

  10. We are with CC baltimore through baton rouge, la and were given a referral time of 9-12 months from hstk, specifically for a girl. Boys are a little faster I think.
