Pottery Barn catalog, Dell Computer catalog, I-600A confirmation letter

If we're playing Jeopardy then my answer is, "What was in The Osborn's mailbox today."

We received confirmation that our I-600A was received and at the very bottom of the letter was a date for our fingerprinting appointment: August 11, 2007 at 9:00 a.m.

I know the adoption jargon doesn't mean a lot to many of you but the bottom line is that it is PROGRESS.

Thank you for your continued prayers!

A special delivery

Yea for the FedEx man!!! He left a nice little surprise on our doorstep yesterday--our completed homestudy. This means we can file paperwork with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) a part of the Department of Homeland Security. Once they process our paperwork, they will send us an appointment to be fingerprinted and process more forms. Please pray it won't take long for us to get the appointment to be fingerprinted. Luckily, that is done here in San Antonio and we don't have to travel far to get that done.

In the meantime, we have a stack of paperwork ready to be notarized and that'll done within the next few days.

It is a long time before our chick will be ready, but we pray for patience each step of the way...
