5 Months 6 Days 10 Hours 7 Minutes...

To think that we don't count every moment of every day would be undermining our perseverance. The Mailman has suddenly become our most anticipated visitor, the occasional post about an I-171H arriving "earlier than expected" is our unexpected window of hope that things may progress "quicker than expected". I use quotes because the very meaning of the word "expected" deserves to be taken contextually. There are no expectations in international adoption, yet we as adoptive parents would be lying if we said that we had none. We have expectations, however they may be more in the form of hopes.

So, you're stalking the mailman...definitely a sign that you're adopting! Hope it comes soon!

To add to the the hope, I just wanted to let you know that my I-171H came SUPER fast. I think I got it one week after my fingerprints were done (I had already submitted my homestudy and all the other supporting materials they asked for).

My fingers are crossed for you that you get that wonderful envelope in the mail very soon.
