Our ticker turned over. We've been waiting 6 months for a referral. It's been a wonderful, long, agonizing, quick 6 months. Yes, lots of contradictions. My emotions are all over. We also got good/bad news yesterday that plays into this. Nothing definitely but some likely scenarios that don't make waiting easier! Grrr!
I've also been wondering something, maybe some of you can help me. I looked at our agencies info and it says that Home Studies are good for 1 year. Is that 1 year from agency approval? Or 1 year from USCIS approval? Big difference in when we need to get things done. Also, I was trying to remember when fingerprints expire. Is that 1 year, 18 months, 15 months - I remember there were a few different USCIS expiration dates. I should look it up.
Sorry, I'm surprised at how hard this 6 month mark is hitting me. I want to be expecting a referral soon, but I know I shouldn't. I'm watching time lines and currently it looks like 8ish months, but will it be longer by the time it gets to us? Who knows. I shouldn't speculate. It's hard not to.
If you listened this long, you deserve a cookie! Thanks for letting me whine. I think my kids may be rubbing off on me. There's been a fair amount of whining since returning from Christmas. ;)
