Just wanted to give everyone a quick update. We are on day 48 of our USCIS wait. From everything we have been seeing it is currently taking approx. 60-70 days for approval, but we are keeping our fingers crossed that it could come any day. In the meantime we have been sending our paperwork to our caseworker for proof reading. Once we get approval we will then take everything to a State office for certifications. Then our entire Dossier (includes: physicals, employement letters, family pictures, financial statements, passport copies, police clearance letters, etc...) will go to the Chinese Consulate in Chicago for authentication. This step should take approx. a week. Then everything goes to our agency and they send it to China for review/approval. We are hoping to have everything done and be Dossier to China (DTC) by Sept. 1. Our caseworker said that once we are DTC they will start looking for a match for us. How exciting!!!!! Please keep us in your prayers these next few weeks that everything goes smoothly.
