Ok, so you may have read on twitter/facebook that birth certificates had been issued with our last names on them in late August. From there, there are just a few more steps.
1. File needs to be finished being legalized (every signature checked and verified as legal)
2. File enters MOI – another verification step and then recommendation for passport issuance with our last names.
3. Passport issuance
4. Entire dossier heads to the US Embassy for final approval of our I-600 (already have in writing, they are just waiting for paperwork to be in their hands).
5. File moves to the US Consular section at the Embassy for the Visa issuance (entails a visa interview and then the visa will be issued a few days later).
6. Visas issued
7. We go and get the boys.
Seven small steps, but each one seems to take forever. Would you please pray with us that we would move into MOI this week?
