We first saw her picture on a waiting list two and a half years ago. She has had a place in my heart since I first saw her picture. It has been an emotional ride and I can't wait for her to get home.
We had decided it would be best to have her escorted home instead of traveling back to Ethiopia. We filed our I-600 here in the USA on June 3 and had been told the processing times were 75 days. We received our I-600 approval in the mail YESTERDAY!!!
For those who don't know the I-600 is what you file to get their travel visa. You would normally file it in the country of adoption when you travel to your Embassy appointment.
I don't have a travel date for her yet. I am waiting on the agency to arrange the escort.
