Of Course There is More to Say...

Our file is now lost in the mail. The correspondence department mailed it on 3/19. The MOJ has not received it.

The Correspondence Department

Correction to the previous post. Our file isn't really with the DIA yet. Apparently the DOJ has a correspondence department. And they still have our file. So it hasn't yet gone to the next step for MOJ approval. Because it is waiting to be sent by the correspondence department.

Could there be anything else to say?

We do, we don't, we do, we don't, WE DO!

That sums up our experience with DOJ approval since last September. But I'm here to report that as of March 19, 2009 - WE HAVE DOJ APPROVAL (actually it may have been March 18 as the embassy says one thing and the agency another). Our file is now at the DIA where it should receive MOJ approval in the next few days. I'll bet none of you remember the post in October of 2007 where I talked about the remaining steps of DOJ, MOJ and then the sweetest, best acronym - TA (travel approval). No, 2007 is not a typo. Today would have marked 17 months waiting for this approval - and, understandably, we are thrilled to be past this step! We expect to receive travel approval in 7-12 weeks. We are so ready to meet our girl!
