This morning, we mailed off another big packet of really special and important documents. We have been waiting for months to send these documents off to USCIS and we finally received the final paperwork needed this morning to complete our I-600 application. I took a huge sigh of relief knowing they were finally on their way. It felt so good to be doing something and making progress toward getting our daughter home!
I tried to snap a quick photo on my phone of the boys with this super important envelope but they were too excited about the lollipop they were just given…
I prayed over this packet of paperwork all morning and will continue to pray that it arrives smoothly at the proper location and is reviewed quickly. I’m praying for swift approvals from our USCIS officer. After our approval is given, it is sent to the US Embassy in Kinshasa to alert them that our investigation can begin.
There is no way to know how much longer we have to wait for S to come home. We need to receive USCIS approval and then US Embassy approval. At that point, S will receive her Visa and, if all goes well, then we will travel. This could take anywhere from two to eight months. It all depends on how quickly our case is reviewed at each point and the specifics pertaining to our case are approved.
This is a big step forward. I’m praying that God continues to grant favor to our daughter and our family during this process. I’m just praying He orchestrates each step and all of the logistics to get her home already. 🙂
