Thank you, thank you, thank you Officer Ladd of USCIS - our I-800A application was approved yesterday after a 40 day wait. Today was our original fingerprint appt - so thankful we decided to walk-in early!
what happens now - we wait to get the document then notarize it (as a copy), certify it at Secretary of State's office, one more drive to Chicago to have it authenticated at the Consulate. Then we overnight it to our agency so they can send our dossier to China. After a couple weeks, we will get our log-in date and start waiting for our LOA which basically says China says YES!
when will we travel? No clue - hoping & praying for July.
