We received our immigration paper work a few days ago (the I800A) and we were told to wait until our home study had been approved by the state to send it off to USCIS.
Well, we found out today that our home study has been approved by the state of Alabama! Finally! Praise God!
All we need to do is sign the I800A and send a money order for $890 <gulp> to USCIS. We plan to do this first thing tomorrow! The next step will be our final finger printing in Birmingham which *should* take place next month. Today we were also registered with CARA, Central Adoption Resource Authority. This is the body that governs all Indian adoptions!! Yay, another praise! When I received the email from our agency (Children of the World), with the screen shot of our registration, Denise said to print it for her baby book.
Baby book? Wow.
It's so much more tangible.
After weeks of paper work and weeks of waiting, it's refreshing to see progress being made.
This is for your baby book Mia. Can't wait to share it with you. <3
