We are supposed to be DTE today. I don’t know if we are actually. I didn’t want to be a nag, so I waited until 3:30 this afternoon (4:30 eastern) to email our family coordinator. She wrote back quickly with this response:
“[Agency Representative] is sending out the DTE email to you right now as it should be FedEx’d to Ethiopia this weekend!”
I never got that email, so I don’t know if that means we are DTE and didn’t receive the email or if something happened and my dossier is sitting quietly on someone’s desk in Virginia. I’m trying not to worry.
In other news, USCIS has cashed our giant check, but no fingerprinting appointment is in sight. I overnighted the documents to Texas (as instructed) where they cashed the check and then mailed the documents to the USCIS office in my home town (please wait 7-10 days for delivery). I think I could have just delivered it myself and saved a step, but that’s not how it’s done.
