The only logical explanation: It must have been Jack Bauer working on our immigration case.
WE GOT USCIS APPROVAL. Our officer CALLED ME this morning to tell me the news.
A process that I was told, on more than one occasion, by several USCIS employees, should take 75 days.
24 hours. Jack Bauer style.Although he sounded pretty much like a woman and told me a different name. Which was kind of confusing...... but I knew it was him. He is sneaky like that.
At first I said I had no words, but then I realized I haven't shut up about this news all morning. Evidently I have lots of words. The next question everyone is asking: What does this mean, Carly..... What's next?
A season of waiting.
We wait to hear the words that we have been officially submitted. This could happen sometime in the next two weeks. We have been sending over our dossier in bits and pieces so that the team there could work on them and translate them. They will have 5 pieces of paper to add now and then they will take all of my paper baby to the court.
We wait to hear our Court Date or Travel Date. This is the long wait. After being submitted it usually takes 7-11 weeks to find out your court date. The Court date is usually 2-4 weeks later.
To simplify: We might be traveling in about 13-15 weeks.
So this means I should start looking for winter coats......
Also, credit where credit is due. 24 hours = God's handiwork. That has His name all over it. He must have stirred Jack Bauer's heart to get involved.
