Update on USCIS

Well I called on Monday and actually talked to a person and it didn't take long at all to get to them, but of course they weren't the person that I really needed to talk to. So they transferred me to the person who I needed to talk to. Of course they transferred me straight to their voice mail. That just really annoys me, it shows me that they screen their calls, don't they know there are desperate parents-to-be that want to talk to a person, not a machine!!!

Well, I left a very nice message, and asked for a call back. Well, what we got was an email today. Not what I wanted, but a response anyway. They didn't like the wording in one of our documents that we submitted, so we have to reword it and the resubmit the document and then he will continue to review our application to see if we would be fit parents. I love how the government gets to determine if I will be a fit parent. But that is another soapbox all in itself. When you work in education for as many years as I have, you get a taste for all different parenting types!!! But that is where we are.

I also spoke to our agency today about when we would get a region assignment, and they said that sometimes we don't get a region assignment until we get a referral!!! I like that they work on so many regions, but hate that I don't know where we are going. We could be in Moscow, or we could be over in Siberia!!! I want to research where we are going, not wait until 2 weeks before we leave to get a feel for where our daughter is from!!!

  1. Hi Denise! No, we haven't gotten our I-171H yet. Somewhere on the USCIS website, you can see what the "expected" time frame to receive it depending on which office your i-1600a is being processed from. At least you talked to a live person even if it wasn't the right one; I didn't even get passed the automated voice guy. I'll give you a thumbs up for doing that!!:)
