Today, my mom and I went to a nice lunch at our favorite seafood restaurant and then did a little shopping at Kohl's. We got back home and Ferdy handed me a piece of paper and said "Here, this should make you happy." OMG!!! It was our I-171H approval from the USCIS!!!!!!!! I had to read it a couple of times to make sure this was the actual approval and not just some acknowledgment that they got the homestudy and were continuing to process. They just received our homestudy Wednesday and must have processed it right then and mailed it to us. I thought we were a couple of months away based on the dates on the website. The website as of Jan 24 said they were processing applications received Oct 9. Ours was received Dec 1.

So, as soon as we have our documents back from Tallahassee and then back from Miami, we are completely done and ready for a referral!!! I will email our agency and talk to them on Monday, but they may say we are referral-ready now since the I171-H is the main thing that is needed. WOW!!!
