Our homestudy was approved by our agency's headquarters yesterday, and it will arrive at USCIS on Monday to meet up with our I-600A application. Hopefully, the "marriage" of those two pieces will quickly produce an offspring called "our fingerprint appointment."
In the meantime, we are working on our dossier documents, which require a delicate balance of dates, signatures, stamps and seals. We've already encountered speedbumps in this process, one of which came when the nurse called to tell me my doctor is on medical leave until April and couldn't sign the medical letter. She then proceeded to sit quietly on the line, waiting, I guess, for me to say, "Okay, that'll be fine. I'll just put my adoption plans on hold til she returns." Geesh! What is it with people? She didn't even laugh when I suggested they forge my doc's signature. I mean, they already have my medical records. I just need a signature attesting to those results.
Needless to say, I have a consult with another doctor in the practice on Monday, and he'll sign the letter.
Frustrating...but it's still better than morning sickness.
