This came in my inbox this AM. It comes the morning after FPD and I decided to just go to Ghana. Approval or not, we were just going to go. I think that was it. We made the leap of faith and it was understood that we weren’t giving up. It also happened to be the day that our congressperson told USCIS she would call personally if we didn’t have official notice of our approval. Hmmm… WHO CARES THOUGH?!? BECAUSE SHE’S OURS!!!!
Dear FPD & FPM (names have been changed):
This is to inform you that the I-600 Petition filed for **GhanaGirl** been reviewed and approved. The entire case file has since been forwarded to our Consular Section at post. You will be contacted by the Consular Section on the procedure to be followed, to enable you obtain a visa for your adopted child.
In the interim, you may also contact the Consular Section on the following numbers for all further inquiries on this case: Phone – (233 21) 741000 ext 1710, Fax – (233 21) 741426.
Then when you’re done with your happy dance (because I know all of you are happy dancing with the joy of our news), I have to say something to the “anonymous” person who decided to leave a rather rude comment about how whiney I am and why I can’t just be happy with the many kids I have in my home. I AM happy with my kids. And, adopting our GhanaGirl is something we did because she is a fabulous little soul and WE are lucky to have her in our home. I’m not saving anyone. There would be people lined up around the block to be granted the privilege to be called her mom or dad. But, my dear anonymous, I have to tell you, if I were going to show you any video about why I have SO many children (according to you)…this one would sum it up pretty nicely. Look at all those happy families at the end. Some of them are larger than ours, my dear anonymous. And, these kids are already here on earth. Maybe the question is, if you have room in your home, why DON’T YOU have SO many kids?
