In the mail today: what is known as the i171h, Notice of Favorable Determination Concerning Application for Advance Processing of Orphan Petition. This is as official as it gets- we are now approved on every level! Deep breath. And now… the wait for referral. It’s so crazy that this form sums up about all we know about them so far: 2 children, male/female, 0 months to 3 years. I can hardly wait to know their names and faces. For now, I’ll just stare at this form and be thankful.
our dossier is officially en route to Uganda today! after several corrections and a few requirements added (which our agency says is typical), this feels like a big accomplishment.
next up: the wait for a referral begins.
