We received final approval of I-800a today from USCIS.

The adoption agency will now send this and other paperwork to China.

Paperwork Corrected

I made contact with the USCIS agent today and was able to correct the paperwork issue. I even received and e-mail notification that the I-800 was processed and our authorization was in the mail.

Hopefully we will get that this week and be on our way to the next step.

Paperwork Hiccup

We received notice from the USCIS of a "Request for Evidence" for our I-800 application. They are asking for a few documents we wouldn't have yet like a birth certificate as evidence of Qiu Miao's age.

Phone calls to USCIS has only landed me on voice mail, so we are waiting to hear from the adoption agency.

This is the final paperwork that starts the process for us to get travel dates.
