I am happy to report that we are coming very close to completing our dossier for Ethiopia. We are waiting for Immigration to approve our change of country request.
We mailed it over 4 weeks ago. On Friday, we received a letter from Immigration and I just knew (!) that it was our approval. It turns out I was wrong. It was a receipt acknowledging that they had received our request and that it would take another 15-45 days to complete the request. I was so surprised! It took them only 3 weeks to approve our initial application.
In the meantime, we are finalizing our other documents. Today we are being fingerprinted for the third time in order get our Texas state background checks for our dossier. Everything else seems to be coming together nicely.
