Guess what came in the mail today?
I'll give you a hint... it's very good news.
OK, I won't leave you in suspense. It's our approval of our I800a visa application! The last piece of paper we needed to be able to submit our dossier!! I will be spending the next few days getting everything ready to take down to the secretary of state's office for certification and the consulate for authentication next week. (It's one of those times I very happy to live an el ride away from downtown Chicago.)
So, if you don't hear much from me in the next few days, you know why. I'll be up to my eyeballs in paperwork. Maybe this adoption is going to happen after all.
