USCIS Approval. :-D)))

I spoke with an officer today who told me that we (re: our I800a/797) were approved on December 16th, and that our Notice of Action will be on it's way in the mail.

He explained that the Notice sits in the mail room for 72 hours, then it is mailed, is I presume it was mailed today.

This went pretty fast because we were fingerprinted on November 21st. This approval comes as a result of the I800a form, and we are approved for our 797.

A soon as this arrives it will go with a couple of other docs to NJ for certification, then ALL will go to the China Embassy in New York.

THEN THE DOSSIER GOES OFF TO CHINA! (knows as "DTC" in China-Adoption-Speak.)

DTC should happen very early in 2012. Then China does all of it's paper work, and then lets us know when we can travel to get our darling girl. 

This site has some good information about this leg of the process http://www.china-adoption-online.com/uscis.html. It is not my site at all, I am not connected to it in any way, and I cannot guarantee anything anyone reads there. It is just another site "out there on the web", but from my point of view, in my opinion,  I have gleaned some good info there myself and it always proves to be quite correct and/or helpful. ;)

Blessings, Lynette

  1. Woo-hoo! Congratulations on your I-800A Approval! :D I remember this stage very well, especially because we had to do it twice due to having an expired Approval :(. Never mind, it's done now and we're moving along - yay!

    Good luck with the rest of your paperwork!
