Yep, doing the Snoopy Dance here! Bright and early this morning we received a call from a very nice immigration officer who asked one question about my state of residence while in high school. As soon as we cleared that up, she told me our application is approved and ready to go once we receive our fingerprint approval. She also told me we are scheduled for prints on March 6. That leaves three weeks for my hands to heal from all the extra work on our house ;-) It's actually a matter for prayer because my prints have been unreadable the last two times, and it has caused a delay in receiving our 71H. The technician says it's probably due to the amount of paper I handle, and it's easily resolved with an affidavit and background and criminal clearance from local and state agencies (whew, still passing!). It's just a headache and seemingly unnecessary delay. Will you please join us in prayer that my prints will be readable the first time so we can get our dossier to China. So, here's the amazing thing - our application has only been at CIS for two and a half weeks! I think this should be a huge encouragement to prospective adoptive families that CIS is committed to streamlining and processing applications efficiently. We give God the glory for His perfect timing!
