A New Speed Bump

USCIS sends Request for Evidence

By Alan M. Murray

Recently we learned an important lesson. When you get a letter from a government agency in the mail and it’s printed on pink paper, it’s probably not good news.

That’s what happened last Monday. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) sent us a Request for Evidence (RFE) which means that they need additional documentation from Colombia before they can approve the application we submitted so Alejandro can immigrate to the United States.

So for the past few days our adoption agency has been working hard to locate the needed documents, have them translated, and hopefully soon, they’ll overnight them to USCIS.

Once that’s submitted, we’re optimistic we’ll receive approval soon. Then we’ll be much closer to traveling to Colombia to bring Alejandro home.
