Last week I needed medication.
It came in the form of some of the candy I had bought to take to Uganda.
After I found out that USCIS had all of the pieces of my puzzle that they needed, I promptly called my senator the next day. They even had a little form for me to download and send with all of my information and what I needed their help with. I thought that was very thoughtful of them. My opinion of their thoughtfulness changed the next day. I was told that Atlanta was backed up and it could be as long as 30 days before my application was approved. There was nothing they could do. Call back if I have not heard anything in 30 days. PHSSTSTTHT!!!!(that's me making an ugly noise)
I just knew that I would not be able to make it to Uganda in time to get my court dates before they closed for the summer vacation. Thanks to the blog world my hopes were lifted. My new Southern friend, Teresa, told me that she had heard it was only taking USCIS 2 weeks to process I-600a applications. YEAH!!! Then the great news, her lawyer said that the Ugandan courts were not closing until July 15th. PRAISE GOD!!!!
I haven't made plane reservations yet, but I have put down the chocolate.
Thanks for all of the prayers and advice.
