After a week of obsessive mailbox stalking on my part, the I-171h is here! For some reason it is dated August 19 (the day our officer told me she would be approving it) but it didn’t get mailed until August 26- a whole week later! As it turned out, there were a couple of other dossier issues we had to fix this week anyways, so it didn’t really matter that it was so late in coming. I met with our very patient notary for the fifth (and hopefully last!) time last night and hope to go to the capital tomorrow for apostilles, and then I’ll ship the whole thing off. Pray that everything will be in order and we’ll get a quick travel date!

Thank you all for your kind words and for sharing our excitement about Vika. It really means a lot to have such supportive friends and family.
