This is huge news. This is the approval by the U.S. government that we can actually adopted and bring into this country a foreign born child!

We got it in the mail yesterday. I am just amazed at how fast it was done. We both thought it would be mid August since we had just gotten our fingerprints done on July 18th and 19th. But the I-171h was approved on July 21st! Now that's fast work. Good job CIS (Citizenship & Immigration Services).

Next stop finish the dossier and find someone to inhabit the Pooh room.
