So excited to be able to tell everyone that as of yesterday we are officially Home Study approved. Whe are so excited. I spent last night going over all of our USCIS (Immigration) paperwork and am going to review it again tonight so Mark can mail everything off tomorrow (I can't think of a better birthday present for him than for us to be able to move on to the next step in this process : ) The Immigration process will take approximately 6-10 weeks so we are anxious to get everything moving on that front. We have had some difficulty filling out the paperwork b/c Mark was born in Germany, but not on a military base. That puts him in the "fuzzy gray area" on the form. There wasn't really an appropriate box to check, but our agency is awesome and talked to an officer at USCIS to get it all straightened out. Keep your fingers crossed for us that we have all our ducks in a row and everything goes smoothly.
Also, we are on to our next big fundraiser. We are going to be giving away a professional photography package. This is a great opportunity for anyone in the Springfield area. I will be posting specific details later this week on how you can sign up. Don't forget that we are also still selling tshirts thru Adoption Bug. We will be running this fundraiser thru the end of July so see the link below if you are interested in a tshirt.
Thanks to everyone who is following us on our journey.
