Three Word Sunday - the early edition!

Yup...we are still waiting for our updated I-171h.
It's been 4 weeks since we hand delivered our application and documents.
We ask for everything to be expedited. Our agency suggested that.
They cashed the check, of course.
We have NO way of communicating with the CIS office except through fax.
We have faxed several times asking nicely to please let us know if all is accounted for & well.
There has been no response to our faxes.
It took 11 weeks for our original filing in 2005.
It took almost 7 weeks for our second update.
Our current I-171h expires a week from Wednesday.
11 days...who's counting though?

Are we stressed?? Yeah just a little!


It will get there on time..
Have a great weekend..

Oh, I hope it comes soon... for your peace of mind. Hugs.

It will come, but I totally understand your stress, hang in there.

Oh no!!! I'm sending you an email right now.

Don't they have some kind of responsibility to answer queries? Is there an official/Congress person who can help on your behalf? Failing that, I'd say fax them every day, every hour, on the hour, telling them each time you have now sent X number of faxes which they haven't replied to. Surely they must have some kind of code of conduct that requires them to act within a certain time frame and answer queries. Fingers crossed for you that you get some news this week.

BTW my word verification is nagonnag - so I say 'nag on' :)

I'm so sorry you're still waiting! Praying for you friend and that your paperwork will be approved ASAP!

Oh man.....I hope it comes SOON!!

Hang in there and try to remain positive:)


Crazy that it takes so long when it is the same thing they have done 2X's before. Give me a break. Hang in there.

Oh my gosh. Have you asked Lesie at ATWA to contact them for you? They will... they did that for me. Apparently there is a direct "pipeline" of sorts. You might give that a try. Hope that helps... hang in there.

I can't believe you are still waiting. Sending a prayer up for something on Monday to happen

it'll be okay. Your I-171H will probably pop-up in your mail this week.
Where are you that they have no phone #? Ours has one but they never answer it!
Do you know I800 have to wait an extra month to travel? Torture!
Anyway, it will be in your hands this week! (My prediction!)

It has to come this week. Post as soon as it does.

Many people of thinking about you right now.

Wanda (At Last..)

are you freakin' kidding me??? I am so sorry you are having to deal with this at this point.

I agree... stressed would be my feeling too! Hoping you get some good news this week!

Happy 3WS!

I hope it comes soon!

Oh gosh Kayce!! I'm saying a prayer right now that you I-171 arrives very soon. So sorry for the additional stress! Adoption is sooo not for the faint at heart! It will all work out, it really will. There were times when we were in China that Lauren's passport was not done correctly by the orphanage, etc, etc,...but it always worked out in the end.

love ya!
