FDL in record time

God what are you up to?  We got our updated I-171H in the mail today.  We filed it one week ago.  From what I understand that’s insanely fast.  I know multiple families that have waited months.  I know this could be nothing but a sweet little gift, one thing in this process that we don’t have to wait for, but it could be something even bigger.  I’m okay either way but it’s fun to have something to ponder and pray over.

Had to run over and catch my excitement with photobooth. Every one in my house is currently napping.

  • I googled what in the world this was and why it was good news…I still don’t fully understand it, but it’s definitely something good with the adoption – so YEAH!! Still praying for y’all!

  • Misti, we have had our FDL for awhile now. But we expanded our age parameters when everything started to take so much longer. We had to refile with immigration for the change and had heard that it would take a long time to receive. What a blessing it was to have it show up a week later!
