So we got some paperwork sent back to do over before we can send it *sigh*

A couple typos in our homestudy that you would think are not a big deal apparently are.

The doctor on Harry's medical info accidentally wrote a '2' when it was the 3rd - she corrected it (you know how you write a 2 & you think 'oops it is supposed to be a 3 and you just add the extra to make it a 3?  that is what she did...apparently that is not acceptable.) So Harry gets to make ANOTHER appointment with the doctor that is not in any way covered by our health insurance and he has to pay for another mobile notary....all in all probably a $300 mistake = awesome (sarcasm).  Not to mention the time it will take and he will maybe even have to miss work just to get the appointment ASAP!


Also - we had been told we'd have a week or two from when our fingerprints are done to have our very important papers we'll need to send over our dossier.

Appparently we were wrong.  It could be as early as a few could be as long as THREE MONTHS! WHAT?! (I think other RR families are shaking their heads at us because they probably knew that already & for some reason we missed it)

We've contacted everyone we can think of including our Congressman about possibly expediting this paperwork.  We've got calls out and from what we have heard - many families have had great success with this.

Our prayer is the same - that this happens as quickly as possible - we hate for her to be in an orphanage any longer than she needs to be when she has a loving family waiting for her here.

Please pray that we have all our paperwork deemed acceptable from here on out and that our immigration papers come here QUICKLY!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Aww, I'm sorry you are going through this. I totally understand ( not that it makes your situation any less stressful). I had to go back to my Dr 5 times to get things right, I was about to give up in the end when they accepted it.
    It's too bad the Dr won't just fill it out and not charge you, since it would only take like 5 minutes.
    As an encouragement, we received our papers 10 days after our fingerprint appt, praying this for you too. But, if it isn't that quick, know it will come in God's timing. I have had to continue to remind myself of this the whole time. He knows your little one is sitting in an orphanage without a mommy and daddy, He knows she needs you, He was the one to bring you together and He will be the one to complete all of this, but it will be in His timing alone. :)

  2. Have you heard anything about your approval from USCIS? We just found out our submission date is March 23rd but we still haven't received our I-171h. Our biometrics appointment was February 14th. I hope we both get them soon!
