I'm so excited! For those of you that understand this process, you understand how EXCITED we are to receive our Gladney Approval! I received our Fed Ex package that contained our official homestudy copies and our Gladney certificate of approval today.

It is just wonderful to be "moving" again with everything!

For those of you that don't know the process, let me explain:
Now that we have our official homestudy copies back, I can attach them to the I-600A (USCIS: US Citizenship and Immigration Services) and to our Dossier (foreign paperwork). I am overnighting our I600A today and once they get it, they will send us a letter with a time and date for our fingerprints to be done.
After we do our fingerprints and are approved, we send our approval letter from them..along with the rest of our Dossier to Washington DC to be translated. AND THEN.....we should be put on the wait list!
Still a lot left to go, but we are so excited. Once we are put on the wait list, it will really calm down. We will then have about 9 months to prepare for our baby!


  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! That's one more BIG step accomplished! You're on a roll!

  2. HOORAY!!! So exciting for another big step in the process!

  3. Yay!!!!! So exciting, sounds like you're 2 weeks behind us so maybe count on your fingerprinting appt being 2 weeks after Feb 8th??? So exciting and I LOVE that our 4 families are all so close in this process. CONGRATS!!!

  4. Yea!!! What a huge step! I am SO glad you finally got it!!!
