Remember that USCIS case status/text alert program I thought would be super helpful? Well, not so much.
It was a great idea, but I have to give the system a big
fat 'F'. A few weeks ago we received our COC (yay!) via
certified mail which means the last official paperwork step of Little Man's adoption is complete. (Still a few more to go but they aren't required at all.)
We got our paperwork but never received a
text message. So I logged into the system and it still shows our status as under "initial review"!
Ha! Guess the systems has some kinks to be worked out.
But the upshot is that we finally have Little Man's official citizenship papers! We sent out for his updated birth certificate that shows his citizenship status. Hope to have that shortly.
Also, filed our G-884 (return of original documents). Very excited to see what that will bring, but boy, filling out the form was a bit confusing! I'll do a post on that later.
