Still no 171h!

I am pretty bummed out! Still nothing in the mail and our local Congressman's office is pretty useless at speeding up anything. I called the office and the one in charge of adoptions said he would call and check on the status of our 171h. That's it. I called him today and he said that he still hasn't heard anything. sigh.

ugh BUMMER!! I hope that you hear something by the end of the week!

would you mind sharing your timeline? eg of things done and yet to be?

Ughhh... Keep bugging your Congressman's office - even though it's useless, maybe your persistence will make a difference for them?

I hope that your I-171 comes soon. I know how you feel. It is almost like you can not breath until you have it in my hands.

Hang in there sis, it'll be there soon! That baby is waiting for you, and the right time will happen, when the time is right.

While you are waiting, here is a little bit of a laugh for you, some silly do's and don't with baby -
baby advice. (I know you know what you're doing, but these are good reminders ;-) !)

Ugh! How frustrating! We also had problems getting our I171H...somehow our paperwork got "lost" in their office. I hope you hear some news soon!

It is always something with adoption, isn't it??? AHHHH!

I'm with Nataliya. Keep bugging 'em. Someone's got to know SOMETHING! Do you have a number for your local USCIS office. That helps too. I called on ours a couple of times and at least got some confirmation that they had what they needed and what the timeline looked like. If you don't have it try checking with your state Yahoo adoption group. They're great resources for stuff like that.

I'll pray for your 171h and you pray for my ibesr approval--we'll get through all this yet--but your son will be home months and months before my twins!
