We Got Our LOA Today!!!

Angie got a call first thing this morning from our adoption agency representative who informed us that our Letter of Acceptance had been received. In fact, with an LID of March 14th and a date on the LOA of April 15th (32 days total), the agency said this was the shortest amount of time for any of their families.

Once Angie got off work she drove to Tulsa to pick up the actual LOA, went over our I-800 (Immigration) forms with our agency representative, drove back to Owasso for me to sign several documents, then went to UPS to have it overnighted to USCIS. Our I-800 approval should come back in 2-3 weeks.

In a nutshell, the LID to LOA wait was the biggest variable in determining when we would likely travel, as they had been taking as little as 5 weeks and as long as 10-12 weeks to process. Now, with our LOA in hand, it is looking more and more likely that we will be traveling in July barring any unforeseen setback.
