I-800a Submitted

Fun news today!

Our home study is officially finalized and our agency submitted our I-800a immigration paperwork to the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services).

We are so glad to move into the next phase of this process.  Many have asked what is to come, so here is a brief summary as we best understand it:
  • It will take 2-3 months to get our approval back from USCIS.  During that 2-3 months, we will work to get our dossier documents ready.
  • Once we have our immigration approval and our dossier documents completed, our dossier gets sent to China.
  • Once our dossier is in China, it takes 3-4 weeks to get a "log-in" date.
  • Once we have our log-in date, we will be able to get our referral.
  • We travel to bring our son home 6 months later.

In short, we hope to know who our son is late spring/summer and be travelling to bring him home sometime next winter.
