We received our USCIS approval in the mail! Yippee! The final piece to our dossier puzzle. All of our paperwork is now in Burkina Faso and now we're waiting on translation. Once everything is translated it will go through numerous hands until it reaches the correct set and we'll get a court date. We don't have to be in BF for our court date, which is good because the hearings are often continued. About a month after the hearing we should have the Declaration of Adoption. After that there's more paperwork to be prepared. So much paperwork. We hope to travel in April or May of next year, Lord willing. Can't wait to see Geililu's face in person and get to know who he is.
