Wow! Only 6 days after being fingerprinted, our CIS approval arrived in the mail yesterday. Finally something happened faster than we were expecting! This afternoon I made a quick trip to Springfield to have the form and our home study certified and mailed them to Chicago to the Chinese Consulate to be authenticated. Once we get them back, our dossier can be ON ITS WAY!
Meanwhile, we have just begun watching a 9-month-old girl four days a week, which is giving all of us good practice having another little one around. She is very sweet, and we are enjoying her!
