Homestudy Report, Where Art Thou?

Our homestudy report should be approved any day now. The social worker was here on her final visit 3 weeks ago. We’re getting a little antsy!! By now our fingerprints should be processed, so really there is nothing else to do but wait for the agency to send the report to immigration. SO close.

I’m encouraged by a report from a fellow Philadelphian that it only took her 3 weeks to get her 171-H after their homestudy was sent in. Minus any snags, I’m forecasting that we could get ours around the end of March. Without knowing how long it’ll take to get the 171-H certified and authenticated, (does it take just as long as it would if they sent the whole kit & caboodle together?) the rough estimate for DTC is still mid-late April, and hopefully late May LID.

There was a LaVida group in China this week. Nothing like gorging yourself on Gotcha Day photos to restore the good spirits and remember that it’s all worth it in the end!
