Moving Forward

We have been hustling with our paperwork, and it's hard to believe that our dossier is already complete and was sent to our agency yesterday for the certification and authentication process. Our amazing home study social worker really came through for us with our home study report and Holt was quick to approve it for us.

We had an interesting development along the way. We found out that our USCIS clearance is approved until 2/3/11. The good news about that is we don't have to do our fingerprints again--at least for now. This also shaves about 4 - 6 months off our wait time. It is likely that we will have to file again, but there is a chance, albeit slight, that we could skip this step IF we are able to be matched with a child AND travel by 2/3/11! We hope that Daniel is flying around up there right now trying to locate the perfect little brother or sister for Miss Madi...

Hi Lisa...we're getting settled back in Newfoundland, but thinking of you and your family always, and SOOO happy to hear the news of your progress to your child that awaits you. I'm sure that Daniel is definitely keeping his eyes open for his big sister, and for his wonderful parents too! :) Thinking of you, and sending our constant good prayers and thoughts. ~Melanie
