I went to get the mail today. I sorted the mail. My heart skipped a beat when I saw a letter from U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
What could this be?
Is it a rejection letter?
Maybe we didn't send enough money.
Maybe they are sending our application back because it was incomplete!
Wait, this envelope is too thin for that.
OH MY GOSH could this be our fingerprinting appointments?!?!?!
Try to open letter carefully with fingers. Too stuck. Go looking for letter opener. Give up on the letter opener and being careful; rip the envelope apart with fingers. Look at the top of the page:
"I-797C, Notice of Action"
D) None of the above.
It's a form telling us they received our application (good to know) and it is now "in process". That's all.
Oh, well. :)
