birthday surprise.

Yesterday marked my 27th birthday!

And, it was TWO days after our fingerprinting appointment.
[see previous post]

Just for fun I thought I would call to see when we
may hear about our approval letter [I-171H] from immigration and citizenship.
[the LAST document we need before we mail in our dossier!]

It can take weeks or months to hear back.
[we were expecting six weeks or so]

Well, I personally spoke with the officer who was processing our case.
She said she would have it done by
the end of the day!!!

We should be receiving that coveted piece of paper in the mail next week!!!

[The officer probably thought I was crazy, I kept thanking her and blabbing on how she made my day!]

So, we're scurrying around today to finish paperwork on our end.

What a perfect birthday gift!


  1. I can't believe how quickly your adoption process has gone so far. Every time I see updates it's as if weeks and months turn into days! SOO happy for you [three]! Happy Birthday too, Emily. :)

  2. wow - - if this isn't all confirmation of God's timing, i don't know what is. :)

  3. So excited for the two of you. I had hoped to catch up with you today at the shower but never did :(. Miss seeing you.
