It's HERE!!!!!

Yep I received my I-171H!  It is the last thing that I needed.  I looked at my time estimates and surprisingly I expected it on the 24th of this month.   All told, I sent my app in March and my homestudy in April, I was Fingerprinted in May and 6 weeks later I had the "Golden ticket".  
I am just besides myself with excitement and it says:  Number of Orphans:  ONE or TWINS!!!

All that's left is for me to do a notarized true copy and authenticate it and about 3 other docs, at my local Secretary of State for just 1.oo per page!  Thank you State of Michigan!!  I expect to get this package in the mail on Wednesday!!!  I wanted to go on the waitlist in June and I am almost there.

I am doing the happy dance!


  1. Hurray! I know how exciting it is to get the "golden ticket"

  2. Yay!!! Waitlist here you come!!! Congratulations.

  3. Hi Robbin!
    I just found your blog and I am excited to follow your journey. There are so many lawyers adopting it is almost weird (you are almost a lawyer so that counts)!

  4. Congratulations! Big news!!!

  5. That's awesome news! Another step taken.

    p.s. that dancing baby still creeps me out, what? 10, 15 years later? :-)

  6. That's great news! Congratulations!

  7. Yeah! I am so excited for you. I'm right behind....I get fingerprinted in two days, and soon after that I'll have my golden ticket in hand as well (I certainly hope so anyway). Now, you get to hurry up and wait. Hang in there....your little one/s will be home soon.
