We got Pre-approval (PA) for our little man! It was issued yesterday (10/19) and was sent to us this morning. Since we don't have LID yet we have 6 months (until April 19, 2012) to get our dossier complete and sent to the CCCWA. My hope is to have it out the door by the end of December as we submitted our I-800A on September 26 and are scheduled for our biometrics on 11/1 (we are "sneaking" over to USCIS on 10/24 to see if they will do them for us early-fingers crossed).
We are very excited.
