Finally...some adoption news

There are bad mail days...and there are good mailbox days. Today was a great mailbox day!

In April, I completed my required update for the adoption process. There were some frustrating paperwork problems...they would not accept the words "criminal history"...we had to redo the paperwork using the words "criminal background" instead. A little irritating the things that had to be redone.

All that's water under the bridge because in the mail today, I received my 171-H!!! That means that everything is approved for another 18 months! Hopefully this will be the only update needed. Hopefully, I will be holding my baby in my arms within the next 18 months!!!

Today was a great mailbox day...not only was the 171-h there, but there were no bills!! How sweet it is!!!

That is great news! Don't you feel like framing that I-171H when you get it? The importance of one little piece of paper...
