Waiting for our baby girl

Lilypie Waiting to Adopt tickers

Thursday, February 04, 2010


We received our court date today! It was totally unexpected because we have only had our referral for a little over two weeks. We thought we'd have to wait a few more weeks until we heard. It is: February 17th!
We are so excited but honestly getting a little nervous with our homestudy update. Because we've moved and Brendan has changed his job in the last month and a half we have to update our homestudy. The homestudy then has to be sent to USCIS for the update and then to National Visa Center so we can get our visas. BUT, apparently, USCIS isn't taking just updates anymore, the homestudy has to be completely resubmitted. Which means a lot of work for our social worker and something they haven't done much of because this is a new thing. So please pray that we can get our homestudy visit scheduled in the next week or so (which would be a miracle!) and everything can be sent to USCIS so that we have no delays in travel. Another thing to keep in mind is that first time court dates have a 50% chance of passing. So, we may not pass the first time. A lot to pray about. But we are hopeful and SO anxious to get our baby girl home!
