The content in my updates isn't very meaty, but I'm just so anxious and need to be able to "talk" about this somewhere. We obviously still have a very long journey ahead of us, I'm just anxious to get these last few steps done so we can start really waiting. Yup. It's the hurry up and wait stage for sure.
On Friday we did get a copy of our insurance letter confirming coverage details. I was able to pass that on to our case worker, so he now has everything he needs to finish writing up our home study update! Also, I failed to mention that our government approved funding for homeland security, so once we have a finalized copy of our home study and are able to submit our application, there won't be a big wait for our paperwork as more pressing matters are caught up on from a closure. So that's good.
So, while we wait on our home study to submit USCIS paperwork the only documents we're still waiting on to finish our dossier are the psychological evaluation and one last letter of recommendation. As soon as those are in we will get our whole dossier packet authenticated and translated! Woot woot!
One last thing I remembered today when I was thinking about my number nerdy-ness about the 12th (like I mentioned in my last post). The day the disastrous earthquake hit Haiti was January 12, 2010. Haiti was already the poorest country in the Western hemisphere before the earthquake, and the death and destruction that earthquake caused really put Haiti in ruins. Literally. When I hear people talk about Haiti it is used as a modern time marker (before the earthquake or after the earthquake). Any country or city would still be struggling 5 years after a disaster of that magnitude, but a country that was already so destitute has far less means and infrastructure to heal itself.
Anyway! I remember thinking it was interesting that our home study visit was on the 5 year anniversary of the earthquake, but don't know whether or not I wrote anything down here about it or not. It's just yet another notable event that happened on the 12th.
Praying for that home study update to come through today or tomorrow...
