Where We are with USCIS

I did not receive a call back from our officer today nor an email back from the lockbox email that I was given. 

I did call both of our Senators from Ohio today. 

Senator Brown's office had me call Cleveland, who then had me call Columbus, who then said the person that I needed to speak with was leaving early for the day.  That ticked me off to be honest, since I'd already called a couple places and it wasn't even 2pm.  They took my name and number and said she would call me back tomorrow.  I guess we'll see how that goes.

Senator Portman's office in Columbus was able to tell me where to go on their web page to get the sheet that needed signed in order for them to contact USCIS for us.  I was able to get Brent to fax it for me today from where he works and should hear something back from them tomorrow I hope.  The lady I spoke to said that the lady who does their immigration help there has been doing it for years and would be able to help me as soon as she had the sheet giving her permission. 

Please continue to pray.  We need this to move forward without any more wasted time.  I sit and slap myself thinking I may have messed up some "box" on the 120 pages of stuff I had to send, but I really don't know what the cause is.  I just keep thinking that it is the number of kids that they aren't use to and is throwing it out of the system, but there is no way to know that either. 

Just pray!  God can do it.  I appreciate all of you who've let us know that you are praying!  Whether it was my mistake, a computer mistake, or a government glitch - GOD CAN HANDLE IT!  I am trusting that He is going to move this in perfect timing and show His muscles for our babies during the rest of this adoption process.  :)

Don't forget ALL THE WAY AND OPPORTUNITIES to help us with our adoption right now.  :)  That link you just passed can give you lots of info.  There are also buttons on our side bar that will take you to the Mulligan Stew Giveaway (ends the day before Keith and Ahnja's birthdays) and the Hidden Treasures Auction (starts on Keith and Ahnja's birthdays!). 


  1. Each USCIS Service Center location accepts and processes certain USCIS forms and immigration cases. For example, the Nebraska Service Center generally processes the N-400 form application for people who are applying for U.S. citizenship.
