I contacted my agency and filled them in on what is going on. They got back with me this morning (A Saturday!) and assured me that this will not hold anything up. They believe that when our I600 approval goes through the visa center will receive their updated information. See... right now the visa center still thinks that we are adopting from China... they never received the change of country from USCIS that was completed months ago. Our agency is telling me that everything will be fine. Since there is nothing I can do about it I am doing to trust that everything really is going to be fine. We will just have to see.
I received a receipt today from USCIS Detroit office letting me know that the current processing times for the approval we are waiting for is now three months. It looks like a form letter and I don't put too much stock in how accurate this time line is. I have also not heard of anyone waiting three months for approval. Hope for the best and prepare for the worst I guess.
I have accepted the fact that our daughter will not be home for Christmas and although I knew it would be a long shot... it is still a tough pill to swallow. I am going to try and stay positive in that I know that this is our LAST Christmas without her... something I couldn't say last year.
