Anyhow, while finishing up all the paperwork associated with our I-800A that needed to be mailed I glanced over and saw some pink paperclips. Bingo! Maybe, just maybe, whoever gets a hold of our documents will be somewhat reminded that there's a real live person all the way across the world that their job is affecting in a mighty way. I'm sure they have to sort through these kinds of documents all the time and that it could become monotonous. So, our I-800A was sent off this week with a couple of pink paperclips. It made me smile at least!

"The full name of this form is Application for Determination of Suitability to Adopt a Child from a Convention Country, the convention country being China is this case. USCIS will evaluate whether not you are suitable to adopt a child from China. Worried about getting approval? Don't be. You would never have gotten past the home study process if you weren't qualified."
So now we wait 7-10 days for a Notice of Receipt from USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services). Then we wait for it to be reviewed and approved. Then we wait for a fingerprint appointment. Are you catching on?
By the way, I am really enjoying this paperwork thing way too much. No kidding!
