I-600, Ernie, and a High Chair

We got mail from the US Government yesterday...but not what we wanted.  Our I-600 form is on hold because some items were missing from our home study.  After a quick panicked phone call to our dossier specialist, we learned the US Citizenship and Immigration Services apparently changed some of their requirements for the home study but didn't grandfather in the home studies that were already submitted.  Bummer.  But not the end of the world and our agency has seen quite a few of these in the last few weeks.  Our social worker will update our information Monday morning and hopefully we will be back on track next week.  And because we are still waiting for our travel notification from Korea, this little glitch doesn't really delay the process.  However, I can't tell you how frustrating it is to think you are getting a form that boldly states "Approved" and instead get pink pages with the heading "Request for evidence."  I am just so thankful to have my strong husband.

After our icky news, we decided to go out to dinner and clearance toy shop for Jae.  Funny how that is what cheers us up these days.   Nothing like a super cute Ernie doll at 1/2 price to make me feel better.

Better news of the week came in the form of a surprise delivery.  A high chair!  Thank you to my family members that were involved with it.  It is perfect and we love it.  Quick funny story about when it was delivered...the very nice UPS man was adamant that he carry it into the house or where ever I wanted it.  I offered to take it from him but he strongly insisted that I don't lift a finger.  Ten minutes later I figured out why....not too many 30 year old females getting high chairs that are not expecting.  :)  It was very cute of him.

  1. Bummer on the I600. I wonder why we didn't have any problems unless it was because our home study was done in October vs earlier in the year like you guys.

    How fun to get new things for Jae. It is always great when you can find great stuff on clarence.
