Unbelievably, our dossier is on its way to Guatemala! That is unbelievable because I paid for it to be shipped via FedEx to our agency by this afternoon. Strangely, it arrived yesterday at 1:00 pm and they were able to start it on its journey to the lawyer in Guatemala before it was even due to arrive in Georgia. Amazing!
We also received our INS clearance yesterday. The full title is "Notice of Favorable Disposition Concerning Application for Advance Processing of Orphan Petition." This comes as a result of us filing our I-600A (which is a petition to file a petition) and getting our third set of fingerprints taken and cleared. Our lawyer wouldn't be able to request the DNA match test in the PGN (which is the step after family court) if we didn't have this clearance, so we're excited that it is done. Now, there's nothing left for us to do, paperwork-wise, to make this happen! We'll just sit around twiddling our thumbs until we get the call to travel. Just kidding! We've got lots of prayers to say, people to notify, a bedroom to paint and furnish, etc. We'll be plenty busy, especially if our paperwork continues to move along at the fairly quick pace that it's been going so far.
