How is it Possible That I Have the Most Awesomest News EVER and NO ONE is answering Their Phone?!?!?

So I logged into my email account today and saw {buried in a pile of 20-odd new messages since 10pm last night} an email from Ginny. THEY RECEIVED THEIR I600 APPROVAL TODAY! Yeah!

So I did a super-screaming-jump-up-and-down celebratory dance and called Ginny.

She said Lori got her approval this morning too!

I went back to my email to send a quick note to Lori and I saw a Reply from Accra USCIS just below Ginny's email:

Good Morning Jessica Sorenson:

This is to inform you that the I-600 Petition filed for Maame Adjoa Quarshie Sorenson has been reviewed and been approved.

Hooray!!!!!!! I just e-mailed my nephew who served his mission in Ghana to see if he knew of anyone. It is a long shot, but worth a try.

I am so happy for you!
