Lump in My Throat

I am discouraged today. I just received an email from our Home Study Coordinator which stated the following:

"The Home Study will take an average of 90 days to be approved with the Court and then I will be sending you the Home Studies and Court Certification form to process for your Dossier and USCIS."

"USCIS has been taking at least three months to process I-171H forms in our state."

Now I am no math genius but that looks like SIX MONTHS to me!! That is a very bad thing for our paperwork. Some of which was notarized in August. Dossier paperwork is only good for 1 year from the date of notarization.

I put an email in to our Family Coordinator asking her for clarification as to what could possibly happen if our paperwork takes that long to complete. I haven't heard back yet.

Honestly, I am so discouraged to think it could take that long. I am praying that somehow, someway we zip through faster than expected. I know God's timing is always perfect but 6 months doesn't feel so hot to me right about now!!!

Oh Jen, I'm so sorry about that. What a discouraging note but I'll be praying for it to work out faster than the average! You know God's timing is better than the state of AZ :o)

Plus, if for some reason the paperwork isn't valid still you know everyone would be more than happy to redo it for you guys! I know I would!

SIX months? Yuck! That is so discouraging. Oh hun, know that I am praying for you. God's timing is perfect, but sometimes waiting for Him to move is hard. I can't give you a hug, so I'll send online (((HUGS))) Hang tough, sister.

You've been such an encouragement to me. Thank you for making me laugh! I loved you comment, "I ran my online bootie over here to SCREAM YIPEEE and YeeHAW!!" Thank you so much for your excitement and even more for your prayers.

Thanks everyone for encouraging my heart! I covet those prayers. We need them right now.
