We finally have all the paperwork needed to file our I600!!! I mailed it off and it should be there today. It is a relief but then I get nervous I did something wrong. Did I put all the documents in? Did I miss anything I should've filled out? Now we at the mercy of the US Immigration. Hurry up and wait is the game of adoption. I'm praying for a quick approval. It could be 3-8 weeks before we are approved. Obviously I'm hoping for 4 weeks!! Once we have that we can have our Embassy appointment and then wait for her VISA. So we are still several weeks out before we can travel. I really really really hope we have her home before Christmas. It would be heart breaking not to have her here with us. I know we are getting close but it still seems unreal. Our case is moving quickly compared to other that use an agency. We are so lucky to be using DRC Adoption Services! They help every step of the way. Adoption is so confusing with so many steps and when to do things. I've loved having such wonderful people help us bring our daughter home. It gets harder harder to wait. I'm hoping we will have an update coming soon with some new pictures. She is growing so much since the newborn picture we saw. Oh and we have a date of birth! June 4, 2012!! Now all I can do is wait for the next few weeks.
