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!
