Thank You USCIS

I love United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.

We got our visa approval! The wheels of bureaucracy moved quickly. We know that they didn't get the information from DCFS until the very end of December, and processing time is supposed to be six to eight weeks. It has only been three! Thank you for all of your prayers.

Today I went to FedEx Office and photocopied everything twice over, then I hit the bank for a cashier's check, and finally stopped by the Post Office and mailed everything off to our agency. Our dossier is complete!

The next step is certifications for all of our paperwork. Our agency will be checking over our paperwork this week, then sending it to the Embassy in Washington DC. The verification there will take about two weeks, then the paperwork will be sent back to our agency. From there it will go to Uganda.

As you can see, our paperwork has quite a lot of traveling to do in the next two to three weeks. We are praying that nothing gets lost and that everything will be approved.

Yay!! Such great news. So glad the documents are off and running! And, before you know it, you'll be on a plane to Uganda picking up that precious package!
