Almost Step Two

I called the US Embassy in Manila on a whim yesterday to ask if they'd allow me to follow up on K's petition.

The man I spoke to asked for her name... silence... keyboard typing sounds... "G..H..I..J..K..L (K's full name)... Yes. This was approved last... June 4. We sent it to the Immigration Section June 8. You can call this number to follow up with them."

"Wow! Thanks!" I replaced the receiver and stared at my Twitter page. Tears welled up in my eyes.

*screaming and jumping up and down* 17's petition was approved!!!!! from web

I whispered a silent prayer of thanks and proceeded to send an SMS to my closest friends.

The waiting continues though. This time, for the papers to arrive at our house.

But I'm not complaining.

My petition for my daughter's been approved. That's all that matters at this point.

Sigh of relief.
