This is going to be really quick but we had two pieces of really great news today.
The first is that we have a court date. In about 3 weeks we'll be back in Moscow! We are totally excited and have spent tonight finding flights, ordering Visas and booking our hotel.
The second thing that happened today is that we received our I-171H. Let me tell you that this has been a big source of stress for us. We actually had to miss our fingerprint appointment due to our first trip to Moscow so the Tuesday after we returned from our first trip we walked in for an unscheduled fingerprint appointment. They let us right through and we were out of there in 20 minutes. It was amazing. So anyone who may be reading this, know that this is an option for you. If we had waited until our appointment reschedule, we wouldn't have had the approval by our court date. The time elapsed to receive the I-171H since the fingerprint appointment was 20 days. Not bad!
One of the reasons we are so happy about the timing of this is that we really wanted to bring our little guy home before his first birthday. It appears that we will be able to do that given the way things are working out.
I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter and will try to post more regularly now because we have quite a bit of work to do before the trip!
