Moving Forward

It seems like I've been waiting for the home study forever.  I thought it was done about 6 weeks ago, then I had to wait for revisions, signatures, notary, and finally longer than it seemed should have been necessary for delivery.  But here we are.  I mailed it to USCIS today.  This should be the biggest remaining step before the dossier is ready to send.  I estimate that it should take around a month. 

The only other remaining task is to have all documents state certified, which will take less time to complete than the immigration pre-approval.

I'm keeping my hands busy with crocheting a blanket for Robin in the meantime.  I've got 8 and a half skeins of yarn to go before the third week of July.

Now to wait some more...

Two Months In

It's hard to believe that we've only been working on this for a little over two months.  I have an appointment to sign the home study tomorrow, then it needs to be sent to USCIS so we can get our I-600A.  That will take a month or so.  Then we get our documents state certified and the dossier is ready to go.

In the meantime, I've finished the afghan and I'm reading a novel.  I need to work on the Amharic.
