Another big step in our adoption journey today! We received our USCIS approval! This is a very big deal.  It is the US government giving their seal of approval for our family  to adopt internationally.  It’s like our Golden Ticket to Ukraine.  Only thing is, it did not take luck to get it, it took lots of hard work, patience, and navigating through several complex systems to get everything just right.  Good work Dad! 

Pretty soon everything will be sent overseas.  Now we need to wait for Ukraine to give us the REAL Golden Ticket!  I’m guestimating about 6-8 more weeks of waiting until the family can actually travel… we’re getting closer every day!
