We officially received our rough draft of the homestudy to look over and make any notes or corrections on before it goes to be reviewed by the stateside helpers! This has been a fast homestudy for us. I think the 3rd time is the "charm", eh?? All that previous experience helped us to speed it up?!
But seriously, some of it was nothing short of a God-thing. Todd's fingerprints were done on the 10th of November--and the agency had them back by the 12 of November! Seriously folks . . no joke!! That doesn't normally happen . . . ("Thank you so very much, God!!")
We are currently working on pulling together every thing to send in to USCIS as soon as we have our homestudy to hitch a ride with it. We will be spending over $1,000 just in USCIS and FBI fingerprinting fees. All of that money will stay here in the US of A.
Don't forget--the Pampered Chef fundraiser (see the tab at the top of the blog labeled Pampered Chef fundraiser) is ending on MONDAY the 29th! Your help is so appreciated! We love Katya and can not wait to get her home . . .
