We returned from a great week away to some amazing news - our 1-797 approval was on it's way! It arrived today. What's the significance? This was the final document we needed to be able to send our dossier to China! The official approval arrived in the mail today!
So all of our documents are headed to the consulate in Chicago this week for authentication and then off to our agency and then next stop...CHINA! Cannot wait to be DTC! It has felt like it would never get here. :) My goal was end of July and we won't quite make that but we are earlier than I was anticipating with the USCIS slow down I kept hearing about.
Happy day, happy weekend! We are getting there slowly but surely!
