Today in the mail we also received paperwork to get our fingerprints done for our I800A. The scheduled us for the Saturday morning that we are leaving to go to North Carolina. So needless to say, I have to reschedule.

Certification Already?

Not really... today I received the package in the mail from Certification. I was really excited that it had been so quick. Well, turns out that they sent everything back because I sent them too much money. Their web site gave misleading information on some of its fees. So now I have to go to the post office and do it all over again. Maybe I will just wait until everyone is done mailing things for Christmas!

This afternoon I sent 12 notarized documents express mail to be Certified by the Department of State. I will need to get one more document Certified, but I went ahead and sent out what I had. After these documents come back I will need to send them out to be Authenticated. We are day 6 into the 120 day wait for the I800A application to be approved.

Our I800A is out the Door!

I did not know that I would be this excited, but I am! Today we received our notarized homestudy in the mail. I got all of our I800A papers together and our BIG certified check and headed to the post office. I was anxious/excited as I was standing in line to express mail our envelope. And then, off it went, and it was finally done. This is so exciting! Another big part of this paper chase process is done. Now I can get together all of our notarized papers and send them off to the state to be certified. I will probably get to that next week sometime. Thank you all for your many prayers for our family.
