I-604/PAIR Update: We received notification from the US Embassy in Addis that a birth relative interview has been scheduled for May 13th. In the meantime, AWAA is working on new copies of an important document proving the kids' orphan status. Once both are complete, we should receive a adoption court date.
The U.S. Embassy in Addis Ababa received our USCIS request to begin the I-604 investigation! This is the update we have been waiting for. Pretty much, it means the Embassy will review our visa petition, read all our Amharic documents, and verify the kid's orphan status. Please pray that our case is handled expeditiously.
