From what I am hearing we should get our referral between 9.21 - 10.1. Hearing 9.29 to 10.1 could really be the days due to the upcoming holidays and I am OK with this. I am just thrilled that we are next!!
These next few weeks before referral I am trying to get everything that I always wanted done around the house done. Removing wallpaper, painting walls, fixing the grout in the bathroom, baby's room, painting trim, replacing our craptastic doors around the house, hanging crown moulding.... etc. etc. Doubt I'll get all the doors replaced but it would be nice. Last night I said to Jay "What are we thinking? We had years to get this done and we wait until the last minute?" Ahhh, nothing like a little motivation!
Today I will go home after work and paint some more trim. Yippee. Tomorrow I am getting my hair colored and cut. Which means no painting for me!!
They have started the next set of matches. Once this news starts circulating it takes about a week for the referrals to get to the States. So what does this mean?? We could be next. If we don't get a referral in the next week September is our month.
I am grateful the our local immigration office works so fast. I mailed the home study addendum and cover letter on Monday, by Saturday morning I received the information from their office stating that the paperwork has been forwarded to China. Easier than I expected. Whew!
