I can stop stalking our mailbox now…our I-171H arrived today! This is the approval of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, essential if we hope to bring an adopted child into the United States.
In related adoption news, TECRO completed the authentication of our dossier, adoption contracts and power of attorney forms. The documents were mailed to our agency earlier this week. It took a week for TECRO to process our paperwork this time; for our last adoption, TECRO processed our documents the same day they received it. I am guessing the Chinese New Year holiday slowed it down this time. Our paperwork should now be on its way to the Taiwan for use in court. Now we wait. . .and hope. . .and pray a judge approves our adoption quickly so we can move forward to the fun part of planning travel and meeting our new little boy!
