So, nothing exciting going on here.....oh...wait...yes there is!!!!  We got our immigration approval!!!!!!  We had been told to expect up to 90 days to get this and we got it in under 30!!!!!  We did break the rules a teeny-tiny bit and go two weeks early for our fingerprints.  We figured that the worst they could say was no....and although they weren't super happy they did it anyway (thank you nice government workers ;) ).  Soooo...our lovely social worker called our uscis person and told her we were done, and she must have approved the next day!!!!!

What does this mean?  It means that we can submit our dossier to Eli's country.  This is the last piece of paperwork that we will have to do and it means the end is in site!!!!  We will be going to columbus on friday to get our dossier apostilled (like notarizing a notary) and then we will mail it off on monday!

So really, we are so so close to getting to our boy!!!!!
